The Nokia folks seem to be strangely silent on the whole USB host
thing. Maybe they are not wanting to implicate themselves in a power
injection hack that could damage your tablet. That would explain why
they took out the vital bits from the kernel.

I didn't see USB host support on the roadmap so I don't hold out much
hope for the fixing of what I would consider a major regression of the
N800 functionality vs. the 770. Nokia has surprised us with bigger
easter eggs though.

I would appreciate some clarification from Nokia whether this
functionality will return or if it was removed intentionally.
