Raspberry Pi hands-on: PiHub and Bluetooth

Raspberry Pi hands-on: PiHub and Bluetooth

Summary: More adventures with add-ons: a four-port USB hub specifically designed for the Raspberry Pi, and a Bluetooth USB adapter. Also, as summary of hardware and costs so far.

This series is turning out to be a lot longer than I had planned; fortunately, it is also turning out to be a lot more fun than I had expected, and that's really saying something.

So far I have looked at the Raspberry Pi NOOBS Linux distributions: Raspbian, Arch and Pidora; the XBMC focused Raspbmc and OpenELEC; and the non-Linux RISC OS. Then in the most recent post I discussed the Pi Camera and USB WiFi adapters. Speaking of the camera, there was a very interesting new post on the Raspberry Pi web site about a python interface and a web page for accessing the Pi camera.

Now I have a couple more add-on hardware bits to explore, the PiHub 4-port USB hub designed especially for the Raspberry Pi and a Bluetooth USB adapter.
Nice!

That's a cool idea! We have several Pi setups which all are powered via 3A capable wall jack to microUSB connectors and use this USB HUB cable to connect keyboard and mouse. We also attached to all those Pi systems; USB serial adapters, and have always found that we've had to plug the adapters directly into one of the Pi USB ports, not through the cable otherwise it acted flaky. I'm guessing that this HUB here would solve that problem completely. We did try a HUB which has it's own power, and that worked. But this HUB takes that idea one step further.
