    I'm currently looking for a new cellphone and i'm in favor with the Xperia X10, but first i want to be sure that it's possible what i want to do. I want to watch movies from my laptop without connecting the laptop to a tv. I imagine it like this: Variation a) The phone accesses my files via WLan and plays the movie via tv out ... without converting the movies first Variation b) My laptop plays the movie and streams it via WLan to the phone which relays it to the tv. Is something of this possible ? .. and another (not important) question: Some phones support the HID Bluetooth profile. Does that mean i can connect my BT mouse to the phone ?

    sounds to me like what you need is not a phone, but a media server of some sort that connects to your TV.

    i am not sure if droid can find media servers (or laptops), but ill see if it can find mine and ill let you know

    EDIT: i did not find a way on the droid to find external media, however i am using the stock music player, so maybe there is an app that allows you to do what you want it to dp
