    On the iPad you could get their camera connection kit which was an adapter converting their 30-pin connector to a USB port. People were using it to connect external USB drives for various reasons and Apple did not approve of this and issued a software update which lowered the available power to the port from 100ma down to 20ma and this was no longer enough to power much of anything. You can reference this thread to verify this:
    Thread describing iPad USB port power issue

    Due to Apple being able to control available power to their port through a software update leads me to believe that Lenovo has the same ability and therefore should issue a firmware update fixing this issue before this tablet gets a bad reputation.
