    Connecting your device to USB accessories

    Arrow left Xperia™ Tablet Z support overview

    You can use a USB Host adapter to connect your device to USB accessories such as USB mass storage devices, game controllers, USB keyboards and USB mice. If the USB accessory has a micro USB connector, a USB Host adapter is not necessary.

    USB Host adapters are sold separately. Sony does not guarantee that all USB accessories are supported by your device.
