The usb on the nokia n810 can be slave and master; requires a bit of cabling-foo to press the nokia into master service though... And forget about bus powered devices.

Perhaps ipod can do double duty too?  Many devices can since USB On-the-go requires it.

Unless something has changed and escaped my notice, the ipod touch and
iphone are not capable of acting as a USB master.
