    Hold on a second. The Incredible has a TV out? And it's a 3.5mm plug to an RCA. Am i missing something here? Video cannot be transferred through a 3.5mm jack.

    Interesting stuff. I like the video out for this device. True, not HD, but then again having HD could limit the usability to play back movies on hotel Tv's while traveling. The samples showing the video out on one of the many video was fairly impressive for the movie they were showing.

    Wow, in all my years of working with audio equipment (just personally) I've never heard of this. I always thought the 3.5mm jack was audio only.

    My thoughts are it's a hardware ability, meaning we cannot do this with the droid. No?

    A lot of the newer camcorders have 3.5mm outs for video/audio....

    Though I doubt we can do it with our droid; it is amazing where technology is going. In a year and a half, when its time for a new phone, cells phones will have the processing speeds faster then current netbooks and the ability to remain cool.

    Sure it can, the Zune (and other devices) has been able to do this for a LONG time.

    a 3.5MM jack/plug is not and has never been exclusive to audio. It all depends on how deep and number of connections inside the jack and on the plug. As someone stated in an earlier post, there has been video on the 3.5mm connection for quite some time on camcorders.

    The issue with feeding video on a 3.5mm jack is going to be the quality of the video. You cannot get high quality video from a 3.5mm connection. I don't understand why HTC is making a phone that is 3 times better (and with an HDMI out) and putting it on Sprint. What is up with that?
