    So.. what would it take to make USB speakers work on the iconia? I'm sure its just a driver thing but how would I go about making it work.

    There are just no drivers for the speakers. It could be made into a custom rom but I doubt that that is a priority.

    But Android is Linux, right? Wouldn't there be a way to install Linux drivers into the OS, if you rooted?

    I know nothing about development for this device, but couldn't a dev feasbly create a system with which to add drivers pretty easily?

    I don't see why that COULDN'T be done. Maybe if you started a group or MADE it a priority in the community, it would get done.

    I have yet to get my hands on a Honeycomb device but I ordered an Iconia a500 today and this is something I would like to do. Once I get into root and the SDK I can start having a look. It's worth remembering that USB speakers are really an external sound card. What's a decent set with Linux drivers available that I can start with?
