    That's the right one. Type D is the micro connector which goes into your PB, Normal is a standard connector which plugs into your TV.

    From Wikipedia:
    Tablet computers
    Some Tablet computers, such as the Motorola Xoom, BlackBerry PlayBook, Vizio Vtab 1008 and Acer Iconia Tab A500, support HDMI using Micro-HDMI (Type D) ports. Others, such as the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer support the standard using Mini-HDMI (Type C) ports. The iPad and iPad 2 have a special A/V adapter that converts Apple's data line to a standard HDMI (Type A) port.

    From Blackberry Playbook site:
    HDMI: Micro HDMI port

    Type D is Micro, the right one

    If you already have a normal size HDMI cable, you may want to consider an adapter or 6" adapter cable.

    I have like 6 normal hdmi cables lol(prob with the cable tv box, and everytime i went to trade, they gave me a new one).

    The adapters are scarce and expensive here in Portugal, so if i had to order it was going to be a cable!

    I ordered a 5mt cable eheh for 1/3 or the price of a 2mt cable here on the stores.

    Hope it turns a good investment...

    That also works when you buy a Type-C... ><



    I find it that 2m cables are not ideal though. Get it as long as you can if you mean to use it for gaming.
