    Is it possible to use a USB Hub on an Android Tablet e.g. Zenithink C71 2.3 (to plug in a KB and a Mouse at the same time)?

    I cannot verify for your tablet, but I know that Honeycomb supports USB hubs.

    I just found two 4 port USB hubs on my desk and hooked up what I had laying around. Happened to be the following:
    HUB 1:
    500 GB HDD
    16 GB Flash Drive
    8 GB Flash Drive
    iPhone 4

    HUB 2:
    Nexxtech USB Numberpad
    Portable USB speakers (power only)
    Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 3000
    Logitech G15 keyboard (with a 2 port USB hub)

    HUB 3 (in the Logitech keyboard):
    Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000
    Logitech M305 mouse

    All devices were working properly. Best bet is to try it out and see if it works.

    I'll give it a try with Gingerbread.

    Yep, tried out a USB 2.0 Hub - works perfectly.
