I have a Nexus 7 on order so I guess we will know, with certainty, in a couple of weeks.

P.S. I got this USB adapter for my Galaxy Tab 2 7.0:

I had USB OTG on my Windows Mobile 6.+ O2 Flame in 2006. I quite often used a flexible keyboard with that device to do some extended typing. And thumb drives also worked. Not exactly new technology.
