I like how some of the OEM's do go the extra mile, but there are still too many limitations for Android to be taken seriously outside phones and tablets. It is literally the Linux of the mobile world, luckily with far better support than the Linux of the PC world. Gotta give credit how far they have advanced it in such short order though.
You don't need printer support on a mobile device, and if you do there's plenty of solutions that work over wifi or bluetooth. Why would you need a bluetooth dongle to work on a tablet or phone? They come with bluetooth out of the box, for controllers that's the manufactures fault not googles, six axis controllers work fine if you buy that app which is fine.
