    just because you can plug something in doesn't mean there are drivers that recognize these periferals. Its like asking if you can plug in a cam via usb to your incredible to videochat.

    The answer is no

    It's been done on the droid even without rooting.


    FierceDeityLink1 - I saw that too thats what made me wonder. So it is possible, just have to see what the special trick is provided that we have support like the Droid does.

    I would like to have a USB or BT keyboard... complex passwords are a PITA with the STUPID stock keyboard...

    Where is the "acute" key?

    I know this thread is cold but...

    There's an app in the android market called 'USB Host Controller'. I haven't tried it, but it looks like it supports certain USB devices, including keyboard, mouse, and USB storage.
