Dell Venus 8 Pro 32gb

Was about to order one. But I read nothing about printing. I have an HP printer. Can they play together and, if so, what cables do I need?

Essentially, it's like with any Windows PC: can print wirelessly if your printer supports that, or via USB, once you have a USB OTG (on-the-go) cable. The USB OTG cable is the cable you need for attaching wired peripherals to the DV8P (and, in my estimation as a result, should be included with the tablet purchase).

Thank you. I figured that but no one selling it describes a printing capability. Be smart to mention and link to the cable for free advertising.

Micro USB OTG adapter? USB goes from printer to adapter to tablet? Male/female/gay?

Not really talked about because there's not much to say--the DV8P is a Windows 8 computer that just happens to be in a tablet form. If your laptop can do something, the DV8P likely can as well. USB OTG cables are all over the place. If you search on the term at Amazon.com, you can see a bunch of permutations. Dell also offers one, in the most prevalent form: http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=A7223619. It's generally a pretty generic cable adapter.

this is female-to-male. Will that work?

Great! And the first should one you posted should have been fine as well--this is a generic sort of part. Regardless, you're all set! :emotion-1:
