    Did we ever get an official ruling on the HDMI Output type, and is there one on Monoprice?

    I believe it is just mini HDMI, pretty sure Monoprice carries those

    It is micro-HDMI, not mini. Different types for sure.

    Looky here:

    bit.ly/9OkDgT

    You can order them from
    www.arrownac.com/

    Part #687860003

    These are HDMI type D to type A cables. 6 and a half foot long. Monoprice doesn't have them yet. Mine was $18.06 shipped. Should be here Monday.

    Thanks to Cary328is on the other board for finding them.

    Won't the dock come with a cable?

    Probably. I'd be interested in the dock if it came with a remote or something. Otherwise a HDMI cable, kickstand, and power cable (if I need it) will be fine for me.

    Dock will most likely be much more expensive than a cable.

    Same here.

    Unfortunately, it looks like the dock is coming out after launch.

    A remote would be a nice touch, given the playback controls are otherwise on-screen.

    In a perfect world I could dock my phone next to the tv, sit on my couch and control my content.

    But... I doubt we'd be so fortunate.

    I'd love a remote. I'm thinking that I will probably be able to just plug my phone into the USB port of my Western Digital TV Live box and navigate through my content with its remote though. Probably only do this to occasionally watch video that I recorded with the phone (or transfer videos from the phone to my external HD that's hooked up to the WDTV Live)

    I'll be waiting two more weeks for monoprice, then Arrow if worse comes to worse.

    I must say, this is the firs time monoprice doesn't stock a cable I need. They seem to have everything.

    No. Type D is microHDMI. Were you confusing it with the listed microUSB?

    I'm not sure. The way that article reads on the subject of Type D, "They will be about as small as existing micro USB connectors." And Type D has 19 pins vs micro's 5.

    MicroHDMI (type D) has 19 pins and MicroUSB has 5.

    Monoprice doesn't have a MicroHDMI cable yet as the EVO is the first device that uses the new connector that is part of the HMDMI 1.4 spec, or at least is the first that I am aware of.

    i answered this question in a thread weeks ago. this is direct from an HTC America tech:

    you can also rest assured Sprint will have the cable at launch. price is up to Sprint but they will have one...

    Or get it from Arrow and have it by Monday.

    Unless you are on the East Coast. I ordered mine yesterday morning and it was shipped yesterday. Says it will arrive May 26. Fedex Ground out of Reno, NV.
