    HTC Evo 3D micro-USB port doubles as HDMI port!

    Just saw this on Android Community. I find it interesting and can't wait to see it a standard in the phone industry. The micro-USB port on the upcoming HTC Evo 3D is special in that it can also take in a HDMI cable pretty much meaning one less port and not having to worry about slamming a charger into a HDMI slot or visa versa.

    UPDATE: Reading a comment on the above link I saw this was announce on a couple other phones including Samsung Galaxy S2 and it is made possible with a new Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) which allows charging along with 1080p video and audio transfer:

    So... You would then need a special HDMI cable instead of the standard one?

    Which means all new cables... And possibility for having to use proprietary ones, because the USB jacks are so picky on what cables will work.

    Didn't think of it that way, although the devices will be coming with the cable because its also a charger.

    Well that's where you're wrong. The cable as the charger would be mirco-USB to USB. And you would need a second cable where it's micro-USB to HDMI.

    Which, if it's like our phones, it will come with an HDMI cable, so it wouldn't be too big of an issue. Unless you leave your special HDMI cable at home and want to plug your phone into another TV. Then if they have a standard HDMI cable, you're kind of SOL.

    Ah I'm so out of it this Thursday, I can't assure this but I would assume it comes with the special HDMI cable also..who knows how long (in my opinion our 6ft cable isn't practical but I never use it).
