MHL adapter for the HTC EVO 3D and HTC Sensation 4G is $30 on Amazon, generic one on Expansys - $17
Amazon now carries the contraption that allows you to mirror your phone's display on a big screen HDTV, including any three-dimensional content you created with the HTC EVO 3D. Even better, it costs $29.99, which is ten dollars less than what Sprint is selling it for.
Generic 5 pin MHL adapter for HTC handsets
Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) is a new standard that will get planted in TV sets to come; on your phone, it combines the HDMI and microUSB ports in one. When future TVs get MHL, this connection will also be charging your handset, while you are playing games, or watching movies from it on the big screen. For now there is an additional microUSB port on the adapter itself for charging.
As for the Samsung Galaxy S II, sorry, its MHL port uses a different pin setup, so Samsung's own MHL adapter has to be used, which, at $33.99 on Expansys, is cheaper than the official HTC one.

Great I have been waiting for this since June 24th. Now I can mirror my HTC Evo 3D & all its content on my 3D HDTV. This is sweet. I can now see all my movies on the big screen whenever I am out on the road also. Most hotels I stay at have HDTV's so I can see movies I rent on my phone on the big screen. This is awesome! YES I just put the order in. I should have it in 3 to 5 business days! Thank you PhoneArena.com!

No this only works with HTC phones that have a MHL/Micro USB port on them. This ONLY works for the HTC Evo 3D & the HTC Sensation as of right now since they are the only HTC phones that have the combo MHL/Micro USB port on them. Once you plug the MHL adapter to the phone then you can hook up any standard HDMI cable to the MHL adapter & then to the HDTV, so you can mirror exactly what is on your phone to your HDTV.

You have to supply it with power via the microUSB input jack. Use your HTC wall adapter and it'll work fine, but you'll get nothing without supplying it with external 5V DC power.
