Support for Nexus 7 ?

Hi,

I didn't see this anywhere, so maybe I missed it. Or maybe it's lumped in with the other MTP devices that don't support UMS like the Nexus 7. But any word on Calibre being able to communicate with the Nexus 7 as a Device? And if not how can I manually import books from Calibre into Aldiko where the meta data and covers stick? I've been able to copy the files over to the device then import them into Aldiko on the Nexus 7, but this doesn't carry over any meta data.

Thanks for the suggestions --
Sam

I have the same interest. And FYI, to anyone who is interested the Nexus 7 is a tremendously well defined product.

I've managed to get this to work using the "Connect to Folder" option with Calibre under Fedora 16, mounting the Nexus with fuse. A bit messy but it's OK. Just need to work out how to tell Calibre to convert and copy at the same time ....
