Samsung Galaxy S II Able To Use Standard USB OTG Cable For USB On-The-Go Access

Samsung Galaxy S II owners waiting for the release of their USB On-The-Go cables will wait no longer thanks to member NZtechfreak over at XDA.  The member discovered that a standard off-the-shelf USB OTG cable will do just fine while simultaneously saving you a major hole in your wallet.

Only enough power to supply pendrives, but drives with their own power supplies, or drives connected to the phone via an externally powered HUB, will work.

Read speeds are fast enough to watch 1080p content.

Unfortunately USB keyboard/mouse, and two different USB gamepads were a fail.

If you want more info, check out the original thread over at XDA.  If you get this to work for your Galaxy S II feel free to drop us a comment or two below.
