Indeed the Cellphone scenario is what comes immediately to mind.  As
usual these things are done by a combination of several parts, and
although each bit might be documented, putting together a working
solution is, as usual, not.
The proximate cause of my interest is a new cellphone with an MP3
player and camera but no USB connection.  I need to ship mp3s to the
phone and jpg's out of it.
