    Is it possible to copy a file form a friend's pen drive to directly my N1?

    Nope. You phone would need to be a host, and it has neither the hardware nor drivers to do that. Have your friend email it to you.

    Sitlet is correct! In order for the phone to be able to read from the pocket drive it would have to support USB host. Several upcoming Android tablets may have this capability but it's doubtful that you'll find this on smartphones.

    The N1 has both the hardware and the driver (someone developed one) for USB host.

    It is so common to copy something from a friend's pen drive on the go (movies, music, etc).... it should be possible on every phone :)
