Watch the Samsung Galaxy S III connect to a staggering amount of gizmos, including an Xbox controller
The Samsung Galaxy S III accessories were just demonstrated on camera, but now we have something more in-depth, showing an even greater number of devices you can possibly connect to the phone.

These include things as varied as pen drives, a portable hard drive, an USB hub with keyboard and mouse, USB audio, PS3 controller, Xbox controller, Wiimote, Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, MHL adaptor and some more.

Video is close to half an hour long, so you can rest assured a lot of ground is covered as to what and how can be connected to Samsung's latest flagship Android phone. Besides gaming and typing demos, it also shows mirroring your phone's display on a big screen TV, in case you were wondering.

Pretty impressive I guess the rumors are true. There is enough juice to support external harddrives. Combine that with exFAT support.

Which rumours? I confirmed those about 2 weeks before the S3 release (at AndroidNZ, that's our video up there).

This is an absolute incredible video. The BEST phone in the world is clearly the Samsung Galaxy S III. I can't imagine what the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will be capable of. Good stuff NZtechfreak.

I used the Logitech for Android 3.1+ BT keyboard in my video, Logitech Android mouse also (although basically any keyboard or mouse with the HID bluetooth profile will work).

What about displaying the TV screen on the S3 instead of the S3 screen on the TV. I'd plug in my PS3 controller and play some Battlefield on my S3 while in my kitchen that would be awesome.

What's up with the whispering and low talking volume? Had the volume maxed on my laptop and had to put my ear to the speakers to hear you alot. Not using external speakers.
