Nexus 4 owners — we hate to say it, but it’s looking increasingly likely that you won’t be able to use any USB OTG devices on your brand new super smartphone. Google has edited out several lines from the phone’s online guidebook that says you can connect devices like “a keyboard, mouse or even a joystick” to the smartphone via USB. The updated page now says that “USB is not supported for connecting such devices.”

Ironically, one feature that Google does advertise and state on the phone’s official guidebook has turned out to be MIA – its USB OTG prowess.
