    I have been testing the HDMI-Out on my new Q10 (had it just over a week now)

    Tomorrow will be the first time I have used it in anger (Presentation to colleagues) - it is an experiment for which, unfortunately, I have low expectations

    I've been using my PlayBook for HDMI Presentations for over two years now - and to be honest, I think I will be going back to the PlayBook and Bold9900 combo - tomorrow is just trying out the new gadget in front of a few colleagues

    Using the PlayBook and Bold9900 I can attach the PB to the big screeen (often at the other end of a conference room) and use/hold the Bold (wirelessly!) as the presenter gizmo (eg forward and back for the slides)

    All I have managed to do so far with the Q10 is hold it in my hand - with a very long wire going to the screen (cumbersome - and inhibits moving around)

    Hopefully, someone on here will tell me what I am doing wrong, and how to more slickly present with a Q10!

    Very often. None of my televisions are network enabled, so it's a great way to stream content. Plus, sitting in the living room with the BT keyboard and mouse beats standing around, holding the phone.

    You can control the z10 with a bt keyboard and mouse?

    Use it for Netflix movies and series and also for NFL games, and Al Jazeera Sport La Liga and Champions League matches! It's super and makes life easier!

    Via nfl app? Is it free?

    What other sports are people doing this with, and are they free or pay?

    Can you really play games on the screen while hooked up to Hdmi? Is it awkward with the cord in the way? What about controls? Can you really get the benefit of the screen if you are having to loon at the phone to control ie play the game?

    ...just genuinely curious before I buy a micro hd cable

    I use mine all the time as well - Games, sharing pictures and videos of my son when my parents come over and watching movies on the 52in lcd as blackberry world is often cheaper than verizon and amazon for new release movies.

    Netflix side loaded works very well, has for a while.

    As for cable length, it will depend on how and where you use the device. I have 6 foot and 25 foot cables. (A total of $30 from my local Canada Computers store. )

    Unless you have absolutely dreadful hand-eye coordination or just generally can't wrap your brain around using it that way, it's fine for games. The HDMI could be in a better spot but that all depends on what type of games you're playing really.

    I'm not understanding what your issue would be. Bridge remote still has presenter mode. See below


    How many people have used the HDMI out on BB10 devices?-img_00000352.png

    You can still use your Playbook, but the person who wired the projector should have run a cord to the podium. Not to mention, there's an adapter you can use to connect to a standard HDMI cable. Dont let the faults of someone else dampen your experience. I'm sure the Q10 Bridge has presentation mode.

    it is useless for those who have no use for it. But obviously, there are many who find use for it. I use it for presentations. I use it for watching videos i recorded on my Q10 or Z10. That HDMI connection works wonders for me....

    I use it all the time! It is excellent to hook up to the TV when using Youtube app, Crackle App, Bell TV app and when renting videos from BlackBerry World. I have not used my Satellite nearly as much since using the HDMI cable hook up.
