    I remember when the Wii came out and the intrawebs were full of videos with geniuses throwing and slinging their wiimotes into expensive large-screen HDTVs.

    As phones with HDMI ports become more popular, eventually the game-screen out will be a supported feature or failing that a popular hack, allowing everyone to hard-wire their phones to their HDTVs.

    Perfect.

    People are working on it.

    It sounds like if it is not possible for all screen content to be pushed over, it still might be possible for games to include special code to do it individually.

    FYI - supposedly, the gamepro drivers allow the use of a bluetooth controller on the Evo.

    I think that the code that will allow developers to do this is in Froyo. The developer will have to make changes to their app to allow this.

    You're not m8. Alot of people are waiting for HDMI to output OS and/or apps. Especially for Emulators.

    Yes, all future updates are free since you bought the app.
