No - that link is to a mini-ab connector while the Freerunner uses a mini-b
connector. I'd need to check the USB specs to be sure, but I think the
suggestion is now that devices that can do both client and host mode use the
mini-ab socket while the mini-b socket is used for devices that only do
client-mode. Whether this had been agreed when the Freerunner was being
designed is another matter.
