Default USB & Raw Data

Please Login to Remove!

Is it possible to write an app that simply waits for raw data to be sent over USB and display the raw data on the Blackberry?

I have several devices that I've built that spit out raw text.

One device is an RFID reader.
Another device is a GPS module.

I want to be able to collect the raw text from these devices via a USB cable and display the text on my Blackberry. I've already chopped up a USB cable that has a plug on one end that connects to my RFID reader and my GPS module. The devices have their own power supplies. So, I won't be needing to power them from my BB.

If this can be done with the BB, is there a way that I can telnet to my simulator and feed it raw text during testing?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

I don't believe that the Blackberry can be a USB bus master.
