Nexus Conspectus

Having recently talked myself into another unnecessary electronic device (those paperbacks just take up too much space), I am subsequently forced to wring every possible ounce of usefulness out of a shiny new Google Nexus 7 (2013) in order to justify my lack of financial responsibility.

First on the purchase list was an OTG (On-the-Go) USB adapter cable by IVSO, allowing for the insertion of every random USB device at hand and the compilation of this trial-by-error OTG compatibility conspectus.

As I encounter more USB flotsam to force upon my unwilling replicant their misbegotten offspring will be appended to this list. Feel free to make suggestions, corrections or contribute your own observations in the comments.
