Some Android tablets and smartphones – such as Asus’ Transformer tablets – have full-size USB ports that you can use to connect USB thumb sticks or accessories such as a keyboard.

 

However, many of them only have one USB port, which can be painful if you want to plug in more than one memory stick or accessory at a time.

 

The good news is that the versions of Android that power your tablet will work with a USB hub, which is a type of four-way adaptor for USB.

 

So just plug a USB hub into your USB port – or ask for one up at a local computer store – and without having to go through any menus or configure anything, your problem is solved!
