    Is there any other phone with tv out capability to show "whatever is being shown on the phone at the time"? Besides the Incredible.

    All these new hdmi out phones seem to only show

    I need to transmit apps like google maps to a big lcd screen. Why is it so hard to just show whats on the damn screen? It seems like we are going backwards in development here.

    BTW I would rather have a GSM (WCDMA) version. Thats why Im asking in the first place.

    Thanks for any insight!

    The samsung galaxy s line of phones can also do that. Available on t-mobile and at&t right now as the samsung vibrant and samsung captivate. Sprint is getting its version soon the epic 4g which is 4g and has a physical keyboard, and not sure about the verizon version. But those phones also are able to do what you're asking about.

    The galaxy line looks ok, GSM and all.

    It seems that you need a regular $5 ipod video cable with 3 rca jacks. Same as I saw with the DINC. Apparently you use the red one for video though. White and yellow for sound.

    Also has a wireless DNLA connection to a tv. Not clear what that is.

    There is a rumor about a $50 micro usb to hdmi as well.

    I wonder if the hdmi will show only the limited items I mentioned before as opposed to the screen shot?
