 Does the Android framework support USB devices, like Phidgets? Can an
app take a stream of data from a phidget?

 Clarification: Is there a way to connect a Phidget, via USB, to the
Android and have an application gather input data from the phidget in
real time? (I hope that's clearer).

 Which USB-profile(s) does your Phidget use?

I'm not sure what a Phidget is, but currently there are no Java APIs
for dealing with USB at the moment.  We only have built-in support for
USB mass storage and ADB.

If you can give us a better idea of what you are trying to do, we will
be able to consider it as a feature request.
