Does the Android support USB devices?

 Question for anyone who thinks they know:

Can Android interface with USB devices, like Phidgets? I looked, but I
found nothing indicating it is possible or impossible. Has anyone done
any work in this area?

My goal here is to plug a Phidget Encoder into the Android to stream
data to an app I'm writing.

Thoughts, oh ye developers of Android?

 Not yet.  You'll need the ability for android to be a usb host, marked
as an enhancement here:  http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=738
