I don't believe you can, but you can always hook it up to a hub and then
plug into there, or use it like a USB OTG connection. I believe that was
the intent.

Part of the interesting thing of the Pi0, in my opinion, will be if you can
still hook up the camera. Then you can have some fun. Same for anything
else really where you need the speed of the ARM11 core.
