Can I connect external keyboard or camera to my Cruz?

The USB port on the Cruz units do not support HOST mode. This means one cannot connect a mobile keyoard device or a USB camera.


It also means that there is no Internet or network connectivity via USB connection either. (The Wi-Fi device is the only method of accessing the Internet.)


The USB ports on the Cruz units only allow tethering to a computer for the purpose of mounting SD storage as a USB Mass Storage drive or for the purpose of ADB administration.


The exception to this is the T500 series that has two USB ports, one for tethering, and the other for hosting a USB keyboard or mouse with the supplied dongle.
