    Is the PSP's USB port host capable? i.e. can it support other USB devices like keyboards and the like, seeing as it's screen does not have touch capabilities (dunno why they didn't bother with it as it could've been useful for things like the browser at least), etc.?

    Has anyone done it? It would seem like keyboards would be useful for development, browsers, etc. and if USB storage drivers existed... well that would be even better.

    (I'm just curious ATM as I'm planning on picking up a PSP slim, Datel service tool, couple of memory stick pro duos and flashing whatever the current custom firmware is on it. I plan to mainly use it for emulation, SNES & PSX(I've got a TON of PSX games), as well as trying it out for all of it's other homebrew apps and the builtin browsing capabilities for something with a smallish & somewhat easily portable form factor. The DS lite just isn't cutting it for use browsing, and alot of the other homebrew beyond games are, well, half-baked or IOW alot of good ideas that just never seem to quite "get there". OTOH I'm pretty certain that I'll still prefer DS for native games, as I haven't seen many/any PSP native titles that look worth bothering with.)

    OK then, could someone point me in the direction of a decent site similar to gbatemp, but focusing on the PSP? (I made a half-hearted search, and came up with a bunch of semi-crappy sites several months ago.)

    Try PSPmod.

    The old psp can use IR keyboards. The new slim does not have an IR port. PSPs USB runs in slave mode, i'm not sure about all the details on this.
