    I know my Moto Droid can host, and act as a peripheral, i have used it in my car which has a built in USB port, but i was looking around earlier and found attempts at forcing host before the OS came out that supported, could i use the native (now) host feature to run things off a flash drive, or plug in a full keyboard, or some sort of USB to VGA display converter or something?

    Not without driver support. I think we'll see peripherals in the future ... but none are available now that I'm aware of.

    i have seen a youtube vid of a guy with a Nexus One, using it as a workstation, and having all kinds of peripherals attached, like; keyboard, mouse, flash drive, and a webcam. he used them with the workstation mode, but he did it, and i have read blogs saying people they connected keyboards nativly. the flash drive, with a powered usb hub, should read like a micro-sd, shouldn't it?

    I know the vid you're talking about, and that guy wrote all of his own drivers to get all that to work.
