    In short, yes. You will need to do a few things though. First, the best I could find about making your device a USB host is at the following link. It talks about making your phone capable of being a USB host.

    Second, you need to make a hub, which the details can be found here. It doesn't seem all that difficult to make up your own hub, as I have been doing it for years now. It has gotten easier now that the connectors, cable, and other doo-dads have become more readily available, so you really don't have to use donor cables, although it is, by far the cheapest.

    Please note though, the first link I posted called out Android OS 3.1 and newer. I am not certain if 4.0/4.1 have this feature enabled already, or if there is a different way of doing it, but I am guessing not.

    I hope this steers you in the right direction at least. If you do pull the trigger, please post your results/progress, as others would be interested in this, if not, just me.
