comment Can I use my Nexus7 charger to charge my Android phone?
It might work less well the other way around. The N7 has an almost completely stripped sleeve, making for a very long plug. Conversely my Galaxy Nexus has a quite short USB sleeve - I can't get it far enough into the N7 for it to charge. (The micro-usb standard clearly isn't quite prescriptive enough!)

comment Can I USB-tether my Android tablet to my Android phone?
I'm going to pick one of these up thatcable.com/product/… (other providers are available though finding the right search term has been a pain) and see what happens when I plug my phone into my tablet.

Dang. I wish I'd seen this response earlier (shakes fist at SO for not notifying me of the answer), looks ideal. @t0mm13b is there any chance you could re-upload it somewhere? The mediafire link is dead.

Hmm, no-one has any ideas? My N7 makes me as ready and waiting paying customer...

Oh the joys of the ever moving android world. Opera did, the behaviour was added to the stock android browser but I'm now using Chrome for Android Beta which does it and a lot more.

comment Plugging phones into tablets
Sorry for dropping off the radar. It certainly sounds sensible, but as it happens I've upgraded to a galaxy nexus so I've not tested your answer as my xoom is mostly just sitting in my bag looking forlorn.
