    Regardless, I doubt you will ever see a Windows Phone with OTG that doesn't have a Micro-AB. Samsung and Google seem to think they can do whatever they want, but Nokia and Microsoft like to do things the right way.
    In specification for Nokia Lumia 920 i see support for OTG, does that means there's usb Micro-AB or not?

    I hope we get USB OTG and the File Manager SOON!
    Because I'm getting my 1520 soonish (I hope around May 6th), and I don't want to suffer without them.

    Just today I reminded myself how much I actually use BOTH of those features.

    No. Micro-AB has a square socket like this

    Wile majority of smartphones, including 920, has a socket like this:

    Since File Manager is already in progress and could be in the 'final' release of the Windows Phone 8.1, hopefully we will see OTG support too soon. Or in some GDR.

    I think we'll see both OTG and the File Manager in the final release of WP8.1.

    Because some guy said that he was testing WP8.1 and he saw both of those featuers but they somehow got dropped from the dev preview.

    Now since we saw the File Manager on Belfiore's device, I think that build has access to OTG also. If it doesnt come with final 8.1, it'll come in a GRD fo' sho'!

    I use to have one of those OTG USB port plugs on my HTC One. I think I still got it somewhere. The One didn't have a sd card, so I kept my mp3's on it.

    Guys, here's what I found. It's interesting that Nokia n=N8 for example supported OTG and they even sold the OTG cables from nokia. Nokia Adapter Cable for USB On-The-Go CA-157 - Nokia - Middle East and Africa

    It's a shame that WP7.x and WP8 devices didn't have it built in from the very beginning. Im guess ing its because of OS limitations.. Let's hope in final release of 8/1 or at least in GDR1, we will se OTG. Not that I m using the function often, but would be awesome to have it.

    I'd love to see otg come to wp. SD card is a must for me, only option for devices without sd capability would be otg. The 1020 would benefit greatly. I really hope this feature comes soon!

    I cannot wait until the merge of Windows Phone and Windows RT is finished. There will be a blast of features coming to WP - simply spoken everything that is now working on RT but not on WP. Except the desktop mode because I think MS will kill the desktop in the future RT/WP version.
