ebook android readers and usb host - otg support

Hello, this is my first post, i am looking for an ereader, android os etc.. and i want to add a usb smartcard reader. I am between some ereaders with android as described here, https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=254042

by which seems for me that boyee t62 is the best choice now.

The problem is that i cannot figure which devices have usb host function - otg support.
I contacted icarus and said that no otg support for icarus allumina.. which is a T61??

but somewhere else i found that boyuee t61 has otg support, and here

http://www.mobileread.mobi/forums/sh...d.php?t=245888

one member of forum sais something about otg support on boyuee t62..
i am confused as if no otg support, my android app i am writing now will be useless.. thank you in advance guys!

I believe that there is a dearth of drivers for Android itself so there are few that even have host support by itself much less OTG. It is even complicated to get Bluetooth support for any except the most basic devices. Even a GPS is much more complicated that it should be. I think you are ahead of the curve.

The T68 has Bluetooth support; I believe it's the only one of the generic eInk tablets which currently does.
