BlackBerry does not support host-side USB (I think that's the phrase). Basically it cannot act like a computer, thus you can't hook up a smartcard reader and have it simply appear as an extra media card.

I'm not really sure, the only thing I know that can work off the USB is GPS receivers but they might have a different mechanism to run.
