    Galaxy S2 TV out is by HDMI cable only

    I thought there might be TV out available on the SGS2 via the 3.5mm jack as there is with the SGS. Sadly this seems not to be the case with only the much more expensive HDMI cable via micro USB as a possibility. Is this correct as it seems so to me? Has anyone been able to try the HDMI out route? I can’t find a menu option for this either.

    It's not available quite yet but is becoming a new standard it seems so cables should soon become widely available and cheap generic ones should appear on ebay.

    I was hoping to have some movies on my phone to take abroad next month and output to the TV there (plus view local videos/pictures from the phone) but looks like it won't be available until after I get back.

    First long standing member with a Galaxy S who would like a free Nokia TV out cable I'll post it to you.

    You might be able to get one by then, there's reviews out there showing them in use so they must be stocking up now.

    That would be great, the cable is listed for pre-order on King of Gadgets but I would rather wait for it to be in stock. It's likely though that the HDMI will not be compatible with the kind of old TV's you find in your average Euro-holiday let.

    The official Samsung HDMI adapter doesn't look to be out for quite a while yet but there's one by BizLite over at Mobile Fun that should be in over the next fortnight (website says 9-14 days) http://www.mobilefun.co.uk/bizlink-m...ack-p29839.htm

    Cheaper than the official one too. Agreed that it's quite annoying having no TV-out on the 3.5mm jack!

    you mean the one NZtechfreak showed us in his video with his soothing voice?

    NZ, will you record an audio book for me?
