Unfortunately, USB OTG is not possible with the hardware (some pins are not connected). And while it may be possible in theory to get USB host mode by hacking the driver, AFAIK nobody has done that yet.

So you won't be able to connect an USB keyboard (or any other USB device) to the phone, no matter if it's micro-USB or normal USB.

A bluetooth keyboard however was on the todo-list at some stage, so either it already works, or it should at some point in the future. (I don't have a BT keyboard, so I don't know if it already does).
