Ereaders compatible with USB OTG Keyboard?

I want to see if I can find something to take notes on.

After some searching I found stuff like KindleBerry, some older nooks, and onyx. Are there other options that work easily through USB otg?

Preferably doesn't need too much effort to make it work with a keyboard, like getting a raspberryPi, or soldering. Cheaper the better.

Also does having android as the OS automatically also enable USB otg because it has the right drivers and/or kernels?

My 2013 Google Nexus does not support USB OTG. There were claims from one company that their product would enable USB OTG but looking at the reviews, too many people said it didn't work or worked with a very limited selection of devices.

The typical problem with USB OTG is that the reader doesn't support supplying power to the port, so even if OTG works you will need an external source of power for some devices.

It's not E-Ink, but my cheap Amazon Fire 7 supports an OTG adapter. I occasionally use a Bluetooth Keyboard with the Fire. And I've tested it with a thumb drive. I've also connected my Alphasmart Neo to the Fire with the OTG adapter.
