    I've seen the Samsung Smart dock for the Galaxy series phone, and I wonder if there is something like that available for the Desire 601.

    I've searched and haven't found anything. Any suggestions?

    I got a bluetooth keyboard and mouse to connect to the phone, and they work great.
    I have an HTC MHL adapter to connect the phone to an hdmi cable for my television, and I cannot get audio or video output. When I connect the same mhl adapter to a Samsung Galaxy s4, audio and video are there.
    Is there something I'm missing, or doing wrong?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    I finally got my answer. I called HTC, and they told me that there is no way to send video out through the microUSB connector with the MHL adapter. The only way to send video to a television is to use the Media HD WiFi adapter which costs $90.00!

    Thanks a lot HTC.

    It looks like they're going for about $50 on E-bay.

    Thanks, I'll take a look.

    I still have a bitter taste about this. I would expect this proprietary crap from Sony or Apple, not HTC.
