    Ya know; I need to vent something out a little. "For those who don't get where am coming from i will explain"
    What the point of spending money on putting HDMI capability on a smartphone when it only has a sorry 320 × 480 pixel.
    What a waste. These device manufactures needs to start showing that we are really moving forward in technology. So far am not
    impressed with the res and screen tech they are putting on these phones. Start moving towards the OLED screens or 1920 x 1080 pixels. better yet, 3D. till then quit putting HDMI on phones; some folks don't even know what that is.

    NVIDIA's Tegra chips can allow for a true HD video output, so even if the device's display isn't top notch, it can potentially output better. Not sure if this will sport that chip, but playing devil's advocate.

    I guess I was thinking the HDMI was more for broadcasting to something like a larger screen or even TV allowing you to view content on the phone but at a high resolution. HDMI carries both Audio and Video which is nice.

    why spend all this money and efforts putting HDMI on your phone to push images to your tv, when 60% of the users wont do it; 10% will but for about a few months or when they feel like it; and 30% of the folks that get this phone don't even know what HDMI is nor how much the cable cost. My gripe is that, spend the money on things that counts and things that we want to have and do on these devices. i.e faster data processing, better resolution, more ram/rom, better video streaming. If the phone don't have that then the
    HDMI is pointless. Majority of us barely watch videos on your phone; let alone trying to play it on our tv.

    Think about this;
    How many times a month do your friends come to you and show a video they downloaded on there phone?
    How many video do you currently have on your phone and you show to other people?
    How many of you are able to download a video that is more than 2MB from and email you got pushed to your phone?

    I just what to see a better use of technology on phones; i.e noise canceling hardware on the phone and not only headsets.

    I agree that there are a lot of features I would use more, but devices like this are being designed I believe to be mobile multimedia experiences along with cellular capabilities. I could see a business user carrying documents for a presentation on their device using that HDMI output. A lot easier then carrying around a laptop since your phone is always with you.

    I can see where your coming from. but the only Projectors with HDMI inputs runs minimum 3K to 5K.
