    Connecting via HDMA is much faster than setting up DLNA - especially if you want to share something and you're at a friend's house or you don't want to set up the DLNA settings at someone else's network. Plus - DLNA is bandwidth dependent to get full 1080p whereas a direct HDMA connection doesn't need network bandwidth at all.

    and not to mention, not all TV's are DLNA capable. Im glad it comes with the Adapter.

    I don't know...the guy didn't mention it on the last review I posted in the "reviews thread"

    I've seen 2 un boxings where it's not in the box. I think it's not included. Maybe just in that one video. We will have to wait and see

    Steve: It is not included, you are correct. If you look at the PhoneDog review you put up, the back of the box is shown briefly. There is no HDMI adapter shown on the list of contents.

    Yeah, I bet if we complain to Samsung that we saw it in the review, we'll get one. LOL

    I just saw the same thing in the unboxing by Phone Dog. I guess Sprint threw a free hdmi adapter in the box that went to BWOne, lol.

    I agree. I think they included it for reviewers only in case they wanted to demo the HDMI out.

    Actually every review I've seen it's not include except the one above. There are about a dozen reviews now.

    i had a feeling that was too good to be true. it could make for a little controversy if people in the east coast are getting them and west coast isnt or vise versa. maybe someone who knows bwone can contact them and shed some light on it, or wait for launch day to see for sure.

    Yeah, that's pretty weak if we don't get it. A open spot in the box for nothing....

    That's were they put the expensive USB/charger cord! No open spot in our box.

    No check again, there is definitely a open spot in the box.

    Look at the link below. If you check the unboxing of the one with the HDMI adapter including it is in the open spot. But there is an open spot in the box.

    I was sort of kidding. Given that Sprint/Samsung decided to lose the micro-SD card that has been a feature since practically the first phone to have one, there is not much else to put in there. All we get, as the man said, is a phone and charger.

    I remember that my HTC Touch Diamond came with a micro-SD, a charger, ear phones, and a leather flip-top case. My, how times have changed in a few short years.

    I'm surprised that they don't actually include earphones. I thought the international version of the Galaxy S 2 came with them, I could be wrong.

    Yeah it would be nice to get more with the phone, but I really don't expect anything anymore.

    That the spirit, don't expect anything from Sprint and you can't get disappointed. lol

    already bought an mhl cable from amazon,
    was wondering how much does a hdmi cable cost?
    can i buy one from bestbuy? wondering cause i ordered one with amazon but they say might take 5 business days, but it was so cheap with good reviews...so maybe i shld get one from bestbuy?and return it later if the other works well?
    what you guys think? i have a can t wait syndrome right now

    yeah i checked monoprice, the cable is cheap on amazon i bought it there ..just will have for 4 days or so..
    so if i get my phone today obviously i want to start using that mhl cable that i am getting tomorrow, so i was wondering if i could buy and hdmi cable at bestbuy and then return it when i get the one from amzon? is that possible? i feel bad saying that...its like i am using them, (might keep it)
