    Anyone able to get a USB keyboard to work on the 7" tablet? I've tried two different USB keyboards using the USB to mini-USB adapter that came with the tablet, connected to the Host port. Nada.

    Well I always feel kind of silly replying to my own threads, but in this case it looked like the third time was the charm. A cheap generic Chinese USB keyboard did not work. An IBM brand USB keyboard did not work. However, the third keyboard I extracted from my keyboard graveyard, a Belkin model F8E211, worked just fine. Even the volume up/down keys work (although the other custom keys do nothing).

    I also tried a USB mouse and a USB memory stick. They all worked OK (though the scroll wheel on the mouse does nothing). Then I connected the tablet to a USB hub and plugged the keyboard, mouse, and flash drive into it. They all work that way too.

    I think that's pretty cool. Not even my fancy Samsung Galaxy Tab can do that.
