Are those USB to Galaxy Tab cables (I think they are 30-pin, very thin and 20mm wide) useful for anything other than Samsung tablets?

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

No they are proprietary. Only work with Galaxy Tab & Tab 2, and maybe some other early Samsung device.
Newer models move to standard micro usb like most phones.

Ha ha, best idea so far.

My wife got it as a 'Secret Santa' gift and is 3 meters long ....  maybe she really wants me to do something else with it? tongue-out

Sure it's a Galaxy Tab cable and not an older (pre Lightning) iPod/iPhone cable?  Never seen a 3 meter Galaxy Tab cable, have often seen 3m iPod cables (and yes, they are very useful!)

They do look remarkably similar, but are slightly different sizes at the 30pin ends....

Having never owned either product, I don't know .... the larger connector looks very Apple-ish, and is engraved with a little oblong, with a short line inside it.

Are you selling or wanting to buy one and did you read the post by PeterReader?

Sounds like it is a apple iPod cable. As all of mine have the same oblong with line picture on them.

And can I nominate myself for this cable if you are in Auckland? Even though my only iDevices are 2 160GB iPod Classics. Im forever running out of those cables.

G'day Andrew,

    I am in Wellington, but if you PM me your postal address I'll be happy to send the cable to you.
