Generally we don’t use any physical keyboard and mouse with our tablets. There is a great reason for that. We want to make our computing more portable and don’t want to carry heavy items. And tablets and mobile phones doesn’t need them, as they come with on-screen keyboard and touch-screen. Even, you get option to install different keyboard app. Google has their own Google Keyboard app in Google Play.

I was using a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse for my PC. My Android tablet has USB host support enabled. So, I wanted to try if it is working. I connected the Logitech USB receiver with my tablet, turned the wireless keyboard and mouse on.
Viola, started working instantly and flawlessly. I didn’t have to install any driver or software for that. The tablet was running on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean on that time. After I upgraded it to Android 4.4 KitKat, the keyboard and mouse still working fine without any trouble.
