    If the homebrew folks can get a stable USB host working, then you should be able to use a card reader and on-the-go cable, though you may need a self-powered hub as the TouchPad might not be able to output the required power for the card reader. That's kind of how we did it back on maemo with the Nokia N8x0 series tablets. Somewhat crude, but effective.

    HP isn't going to make one of these, unless there is some miracle that they restart all webOS hardware development and support.

    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    Awesome! Great to hear that it worked for you. And as i suspected, you do need a powered hub. How did you find transfer speeds to/from the TP?
