PSA: Evo uses Micro HDMI....NOT Mini HDMI!

    I know this has been discussed in multiple threads before, but I just came from Best Buy and was a bit alarmed. I was trying to see if I could get details on some of the accessories that they were going to be getting, and the BB Mobile employee told me that they already had the HDMI cables. I was unaware that these were even availble in any capacity so I went to check it out. He then proceeded to tell me that Mini HDMI is what the Evo uses. THIS IS INCORRECT. Micro HDMI is the correct connector for the Evo. Consider this a warning.

    Think there'll be a 3 meter cable any time soon? It would be nice to hold the phone while watching a movie to pause it, etc.

    I'm sure if BB or RS have it at launch, the cable will run somewhere around 40-60 bucks anyway, so unless you love wasting money, I'd suggest ordering it online.

    I talked to a Monoprice rep (put as much weight in that as you want) and they said they'll definitely be carrying the cables - just not sure when they're coming in. Said most likely inside of a month.

    If you can wait a bit, the DX link posted above or Monoprice (who ships from California) would save you a ton of money.

    $16 still seems like a bit much, I'll just wait for monoprice to carry them, but not a bad price for people who can't wait to be early adopters.

    Those are currently on backorder.

    I was just posting this to make it clear as there still seems to be confusion. Like I mentioned in my post, Best Buy employees are spreading inaccurate information regarding these cables.

    true, brick & mortar stores rape you with the price of their cables... many a fool has left out of best buy with $60-80 "monster" hdmi cables...

    I did tell the empolyee. He was quite taken back by it. "Oh, I had no idea" He even did a double take at the dummy unit they had. I doubt he'll pass the word very far within the company, not much I can do there. The differences are pretty distinguishible between mini and micro, so hopefully people will catch on before they get it home.

    Were you by chance in Avon? I might have to stop by on my way home from work tomorrow if they have a dummy unit on display.

    Lucky guess. Did they happen to say anything about the free bluetooth headset and car charger mentioned in another thread? I called them a week or so ago and they didn't know anything about it. I also haven't heard anything from them about setting up appointment times.


    Done.

    So BOTH the charger port and the HDMI port right next to it are MICRO USB? That sure seems to be a dangerous setup. Quite easy to put the car or home charger cable into the HDMI port and ZAP it. They would have been a lot smarter to make one MICRO and one MINI. Pretty dumb if you ask me.

    Has this config been actually verified by a current EVO owner?

    I didn't ask them as I pre-ordered through RS.
