Nexus One USB Host Driver Developed by Android Geek
This is the kind of story that I love to report on, because it shows the true heart of the Android Community, and the real power we have as Android users. In the video above, there is a user named Sven Killig who decided that he wanted to be able to use USB devices with his Nexus One, and since that functionality does not come built in, he wrote some code to allow himself to do so.
With his modifications, it is now possible to hook up a USB keyboard or webcam, which are old hat type of things, but the really useful things are the ability to watch movies off a USB stick, or to connect the Nexus One to a display via a DisplayLink USB to DVI Adapter.
You can find more info plus the source code for the USB Host driver at Sven’s site.
