Does anyone know if there's something like a USB dial pad for android out there?

 

Basically, a USB base with keypad buttons that you could use instead of the touchscreen dialler?

 

Something like this, but not really - needs to be wired rather than Bluetooth, and needs to be able to dial full numbers, not just programmed speed-dial ones.

Will android recognise a USB numeric keypad and use that as an input?

As long as a standard HID USB device, it should.

 

Certainly you can plug a standard ol' keyboard in and it works - as long as you have an OTG cable I mean.

The key is the OTG cable/adapter. You can plug keyboard, keypad, mouse, ext drive in etc. If the Android device doesn't have enough power, you can use a powered usb hub.
