usb keyboard/printer

as noob as can b. I have a question (before actually buying an irex)( I work almost exclusively with pdf documents for my research) :

since someone ported abiword why can't I plug a normal usb keyboard (and a mouse for that matter) and start editing right on the device. also why not add a couple of printer drivers and print directly from the device.

in every university or office I go there's always a keyboard and a printer. I would definitely buy a device with this capability and leave my computer/ laptop/netbook etc at home.

has been done already? can it be done?
Thank you very much.

# An usb keyboard is working, several language layouts available. Have a look here: http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Ilia...B_input_device
# Printing was discussed somewhere. Can be complicated with all the stuff which is needed for it.

Thank you. I would make a 'sticky' on this one.
