Default Which HDMI cable does the droid x take?

My droid is set to arive tuesday, but i had ordered this cable already

Amazon.com: Abacus24-7 Mini-HDMI to HDMI Cable, 6 feet: Electronics

but apparently i need a micro HDMI... not a mini?

So do i need this one instead?

Amazon.com: HDMI to Micro HDMI Cable, High Speed with Ethernet, 6 ft , For HTC EVO 4G: Electronics

Yeah, you need a micro HDMI male to an HDMI male. The second cable will work.

Micro HDMI is more expensive than the mini HDMI...but Walmart would probably be the cheapest place....Micro HDMI I is the newest thats why it is so much more than mini HDMI.

The only place I've seen them in stock for cheaper than $15 is Meritline. They have a 6' one for $12.99 with free shipping. Walmart doesn't have squat. Monoprice would also be my first choice but right now it's no dice.

I made the same mistake by buying a mini and not a micro. I was a little confused but I also went on Amazon. I bought a 6 foot one from there and worked okay but I ended up buying a 15 foot one too because I wanted a longer reach...so my lazy butt didn't have to get off the couch haha....bought that at a site called ohmycables.com . prices were good and shipping is pretty cheap. Have to make sure it is a micro type D to the standard hdmi though
