    We have VGA in some rooms, and HDMI on others. This morning was HDMI

    Well, on the TouchPad, there isn't one. If it's something you need, you need a different tablet, sadly.

    I'm thinking it's very likely that we'll see USB -> VGA for the TP. Personally, I have no need or use for HDMI. The screens at home are already set for what streaming I need. If I wanted to do presentations, I'd use VGA at every place I can think of. Presentations wouldn't really need high definition.
    Every projector I work with is VGA, we did recently get a new one that I haven't had an excuse to play with yet, but my guess is it will be VGA.

    My experience includes both portable projectors and ceiling mount projectors. To my knowledge, at this point, my employer doesn't have any HDMI projectors.
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    looking for video to show the hdmi video mirroring... just watching it you can (or i can) see that touchpads can be the better choice for flying through presentations holding a tab and using touch controls.

    Can't you do that with your tv* hooked up to a computer?

    BTW 60inch is bigger than 55

    You could get close to that if the touchpad was plugged in to the projector, and you could control it from your Pre3.
    This is already standard.

    The wireless video output is called DLNA. You can already just tap the phone screen to go to the next slide. This is standard on Atrix, Nexus S, Thunderbolt, EVO 3D, Sensation, Photon, Galaxy S II, Inspire, Infuse, and many other phones this year. Many phones last year like the Epic, etc. do DLNA as well.

    Many new projectors have DLNA.

    If the projector is older use an HDMI cable or an HDMI to VGA cable if you need it.

    A PS3 and newer TV's also have DLNA and can do the same thing. It great for looking at videos or photos.

    IDK, with everything I already have hooked up to the TV, IDK why I need another device to hook up to it. As it is right now I have a Satellite box, XBox 360 (Netflix/Gaming) and PS3 (Blu ray only) hooked up through HDMI. My PCs can connect through my 360 and stream to the TV and for what it's worth, the satellite box can stream through the network to my PC. Anyhow, even with all these options at my disposal, I've streamed from PC to the TV once just to check it out. Same goes for Sat-PC.

    I can see where it could be helpful for a presentation, but I'd imagine that these people giving the presentations use a notebook at their desk to begin with, and they probably do all their research and file grabbing from network drives on this notebook. Why wouldn't you just continue using the notebook to give the full presentation? Did notebooks suddenly lose their portability? Is it really better to be giving the presentation on a touch screen (tied in one spot because of cables) vs. walking around with a Cordless Presenter and being able to have use of your hands for other things than holding a tablet? Some of the most boring presentations I have sat through involved people sitting at a PC rather than using a wireless device to control everything and walking around to look at and react with those they are presenting to... HDMI cables tie you down.

    EDIT: IDK, maybe some of these cordless presenters will work with tables, but IDK.

    yes, for the samsung galaxy s phone and doubt it will work on any other device.
    just because it's micro usb, doesnt mean it works on all devices with micro usb.

    all that shows is if HP wants, they can add a softupdate to display from the micro USB port.
    Want to help design and write an app?

    Micro HDMI to HDMI is a standard spec cable that works with a Micro HDMI output device to physically adapt to HDMI. The difference is physical dimensions not electrical.

    I don't know of mini HDMI.

    i understand that cables usually conform to a standard spec. but that doesnt mean that you if you have a micro usb port that you can plug one of these in and get instant hdmi. the device that has the micro usb port has to be able to support hdmi and the OS has to be designed to do so... which i doubt the TP has.

    at the time the samsung cable was released... it didnt even work with the galaxy s... until the software upgrade was applied.

    but hey... maybe it does work out of box for the TP. buy one and find out July 1st.

    That's correct because on Amazon people tried using cables like this, and it was hit or miss as to whether it worked or not. So I'm guessing HDMI support does have to be on the device's end.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    So for all your neysaying, in the same post you are admitting that HP could update software to utilize these universal cables..... I mean the great and powerful Samsung had to do it, nothing stopping HP.

    I do love the contradiction in the same post.

    But hey lets keep beating this dead horse of micro usb to hdmi that "doesn't exist" even though it *could* be implemented via software update. These forums have been awesome lately with half truths and "confirmed" rumors.
