    Pretty cool. Doesn't look too bad either. Not any worse than regular TV.

    Wow, that looks really good. I'm impressed...I thought the TV out would be through the 3.5mm jack and not the USB port - I think that probably provides better quality.

    It will be made by Monster. It will cost $2.76 to make in China. They will sell it for $120 retail.

    I'm pretty sure one of these cables was included with my Canon PowerShot SD1200 IS. I think my camera has the same funky dual purpose micro-usb/composite video out port. I'll need to check that out later.

    Excellent point. Seems like a good application for a "Y" cable so you can pass the video out and power in at the same time.

    This seriously made my day. I doubt it'll be available instantly, but I'll be taking the Inc on vacation with me about a week after it comes out and it would be AWESOME to be able to throw on a cartoon for my little one. The applications for this sort of thing are pretty mind blowing!

    Well, I had a nice post made till the forum crashed earlier. So you will have to go do the leg work this time. Go to Apple's website and lookup iphone tv-out cable. Thats how a nice cable would be made with power to the cell phone all the time. Also, think of Apple's proprietary iphone connection as the micro usb connection.

    I don't think usb 2.0 is capable. With 3.0 maybe.

    Also, if it outputs composite, that's analog so it would take a completely different process to output hdmi. If htc didn't plan on digital out, it wouldn't work even if usb 2.0 -> hdmi were possible.

    The micro USB plug on the phone does not look like a standard plug. I would assume that some new cable will be developed.

    Micro usb is actually pretty old now. My 3 year old phone has it and it wasn't the first. My girlfriend's 2 year old regular flip phone even uses mico usb to charge.

    Didn't CTIA declare micro usb as the standard charger for all phones from now?

    Of course it's doubtful Apple would follow suit with how popular that stupid connector is. I can't tell you how many of those ipod connectors have broken on me. Worst. Design. Ever.

    I don't see micro usb going away any time soon.
