Are we talking USB On-The-Go here? I'm not sure if I follow you exactly? If you have KitKat you can cloud print too. Or you could simply buy one of the microUSB storage tools with a full size USB end (like we covered in the Leef Bridge review).

I am not sure even if an OTG connection to the printer will work..I suppose the drivers for the printer are needed?

With the OTG connection only data transmission not power..that's why it cannot drive an external HDD. Thumb drives are no issue.

if the printer is wireless capable, wifi or BT connection can be done easily.
