Neither the 770 or the N800 advertises USB OTG support. A Nokia dev
mentioned a few days ago that the N800 definitely does *not* support
USB OTG. There were also a few threads (not sure if it was here or
ITT) mentioning that the kernel included in the N800 firmware does not
include the bits necessary to enable USB host mode so there is some
doubts that the N800 hardware even supports USB host. Some folks are
recompiling the kernel to add those bits back in but I don't think
anyone has successfully had the N800 working as a USB host as of yet.
