Samsung Infuse 4G HDMI-out Adapter Demonstration

Samsung Infuse 4G HDMI-out Adapter Demonstration
Seeing that most top shelf devices nowadays are sporting things like microHDMI ports to easily share multimedia content with high-definition television sets, it’s rather bewildering to say the least that it’s lacking with a prestigious device like the Samsung Infuse 4G.

Fear not because Samsung surprisingly packages along an HDMI-out adapter with the handset – meaning, you can still get all your multimedia content sharing groove thing going on. Although it might be a pain being required to carry it around with you, unlike the convenience of a dedicated built-in microHDMI port, it’s still a nice gesture since you don’t have to pay for it (like the iPad 2).

Naturally, the adapter is connected to the Samsung Infuse 4G through its microUSB port, from there, you can attach your usual HDMI cable to it. However, this adapter requires a little bit of extra juice that’s not sufficiently supplied by the microUSB port. Instead, you’ll need to use the included wall charger to connect it to the HDMI-out adapter – so on top of the adapter, you’ll need to lug around its wall charger as well.

Once you have the initial set up all nailed down, you’ll be presented with a mirrored experience on your high-definition television set. From navigating across its homescreens to launching specific apps, everything is translated over well without much delay. Web browsing is undoubtedly nice, especially in landscape, because it’ll encompass the entire area of the television set – as opposed to the narrow confines in portrait.

Moreover, we’re able to play songs and 720p videos stored locally on the handset through the television set. Lastly, games like Angry Birds look magnificent on the big screen – though, we’d recommend having a long enough HDMI cable to fully enjoy it while kicking it back on the couch.

@lucasj - I don't think you understand that this is part of a joint venture for a new standard called MHL (Mobile High-Def Link). Yeah, it sucks that we have to update things to take advantage of yet another proprietary system, but the upside is at least good. Yes, right now you have to have an adapter from micro-USB to HDMI *and* a side connector for power, but eventually when MHL compatible TVs come to market, the TV will power/charge the phone AND you'll be able to control video playback on your phone through your remote, all with the single MHL micro-USB to hdmi cable.
