    there has been some chatter over at XDA about simultaneous data and charging over the microUSB connection and their conclusion seems to be you will need to root the N7 and install a modified kernal written by a poster Timur there. Read the thread and decide if you want to proceed. You can then use a powered hub with keyboard and whatever installed and charge at the same time.




    I have this hub and it works well in general (I am not rooted so no exp with the above) and it provides enough power to charge the N7 without being overloaded (burns out hubs)
