    EDIT: Nevermind those are mini not micro.

    If you don't want to shell it out wait a couple weeks/month for manufacturers to catch up.

    EDIT EDIT:

    $12.20 free shipping

    I emailed Monoprice.com about this as well. I'm pretty sure they'll have a micro available in no time, and it'll run about 2 bucks.

    There are reports of some people have troubles with certain hdmi cables for the EVO, we need to establish if the Droid X might encounter this too.

    Monoprice now has them listed, but not yet in stock.
    However you can buy them, and they'll ship as soon as they get in.

    Sounds like a deal to me. I paid $50 for the media dock with no cable.

    The thing is though that im hoping for an adapter as when I bought a hdtv with hdmi ports, I immediately sprung for high quality hdmi cables. So in this case, some kind of adapter would really be ideal.

    Here's a place for some inexpensive cables (among other things). I'm not sure about the quality of them, but the prices are low & shipping is usually free.

    I did the same thing. U reminded me I have about 5 HDMI cables just lying around, some unopened. Good idea about the adapter.

    That post above about the 15 ft cord is good too. I was looking for a longer cable. All mine are 3 and 6ft. The one from meritline has free shipping. The one from Amazon, I may have to combine that with a bigger order if shipping isnt free or too high.

    Meritline cables are fine. I go there if Monoprice is out of stock.

    Monoprice is the only way to go IMO for HDMI cables and many other accessories. Excellent prices, excellent quality and excellent service.

    And no, I am not getting paid to say that! :p

    For those of you with extra cables lying around, I just found a site that has adapters for like $1.50. Shipping is $5, but I "liked" them on Facebook and got a $3 off code. I have a mini hdmi cable for my Flip camera, so I got a mini to micro for $3.50 shipped. SourcingMap - Online Discount Store for Electronics, Apparel, Gadgets, iPhone & iPad Accessories & more

    Got a 6ft. cable from monoprice. Tested it out and it works great! Seems like a quality cable too.
