The built-in USB slot of the AM700 further extends the application scope of mobile devices. For example, you can attach a keyboard (USB keyboard) to your smartphone or tablet using AM700 and enjoy the comfort of typing on a full keyboard. This is really a solution for people who use their smartphones as a word processor to type long reports.
In addition to connecting to flash drives and all-in-one card readers, it can even expand the storage space of smartphones and tablet PCs for data backup when inserting SD, MicroSD and MMC cards.
Multiparty data sharing is also available by activating the USB Hub when connected to a power supply, such as the charger and the mobile power supply through the micro USB slot.
