See 8 USB devices connected to one Microsoft Surface

One of the things which makes the Microsoft Surface a real productivity machine is the presence and support of the full-sized USB port.

ChannelMetro decided to put this to a test, and plugged a total of 8 USB devices into their Microsoft Surface.

The list included a 7-Port USB Hub, to which was linked:

1 XBOX 360 USB controller
1 Nokia X3-02 Smartphone
1 Apple IPod
1 USB Flash Drive 2 GB
1 Mouse Logitech receiver
1 HP Multifunction printer
1 Hard Disk of 2 TB Capacity

While the video is really little more than a tech demo, if does show the range and breadth of devices supported. Have any of our Surface-owning readers ever used this feature in anger? Let us know below.
