> USB cable is in.
Sorry to keep that up but I see three kind of potential cables and I'm
not sure which one you're talking about :
- First is male USB A <=> freerunner (USB mini AB, I believe) : it is
used for charging and using usb slave functions (usb mass storage...).
This one is pretty standard and can be found in every shop. I'm guessing
you're talking about this one.
- The second is a female USB A <=> freerunner. It's used for host mode
(for example, plugging a usb key or keyboard to the neo. I've got no
idea if it is easy to find that one in a shop.
- The third one is the famous "Y cable", that is pretty much the same as
#2 except it gets an additional male USB A connector in order to provide
current to the neo (from any charger) while using host mode. It doesn't
seem very straightforward to use (a three-way cable ?) but covers all
the cases of cable #2 (hence it is more "universal"). It definitively
cannot be found in a shop and I guess this involves a cutter and some
dirty electronics to make one.
I hope I'm making this clearer, and wonder what we can expect in the
final package ?
