I have measured the vbus voltage and it was only  about 3 volt a
opposed to what would be required (5 volt) (there is no active voltage
I guess you will often need an external power(if possible just buy
yourself a usb gender changer
and plug the tablet into a powerd hub).

While the patches are available is have not hear of anybody getting
the n800 to work in usb-host mode.
can somebody confirm a working usb-host on n800 or n810 perhaps?
