What is USB OTG for smart phones and tablets?

Recent models of Android smart phones and tablets have added host capability for devices connected via the micro USB port. This is defined as USB On-The-Go (OTG) connectivity. It permits read and write communications via the micro USB connector. Older devices may not be OTG compatible and, therefore, do not recognize connected USB drives.
