    I'm going to give a talk about Android development in a couple of weeks, and would like to be able to show the actual phone screen via a projector (i.e. not just the emulator, as I'd like to demo some of the augmented reality stuff like Layar).

    Is there any way to do this? E.g. does the mini-USB jack also output video as well as audio? Can the screen somehow be mirrored to an emulator running on a PC? Any other idea that would make this possible?

    Thanks in advance,

    Android doesn't have presentation mode as far as I can tell. The best way I have seen this done in many cases is using the camera projector presentation tool.

    Basically this is not always an option, but sometimes a location will have what essentially is a white surface with 2 side lights and a camera mounted overhead. A user places their item, such as an Android device on the surface and can adjust the camera to zoom in and see the screen.

    A bit fancier but a great tool.
