    It seems to be a minor feature, but it really makes my job and life easier.

    Now I no longer carry my laptop with me when I have to do a powerpoint-like presentation, and more and more often I link Z30 to my tv and watch movies.

    Ah, and it was also nice to see all the photos of the holyday in my friend's TV: everybody asking me if they could do the same whit their iPhone...

    Priceless...



    I hope they leave intact this feature in future models, anyone else loves/uses it?

    I just recently discovered HDMI out too. I only pay for high speed Internet. So watching content on my PlayBook and Z10 connected to the TV is quite impressive. It has really made me rethink the whole 'smartphone' thing. I don't use my phone as a phone, but a 'mobile device'. Thanks to the native Crackle app on my Z10, i have discovered shows i have never thought about . I even found a 'full on' TV stream of a local morning new channel (NYC), complete with commercials, that my PlayBook streams in the morning. Something to think about.

    The usual iPhone defenders will be here soon enough to let you know some iPhones can do HDMI with a $50+ special adapter wire. No doubt that will spark the debate for at least 20 pages about how you can get a standard HDMI to mini-HDMI adapter cable for $3.

    Anyway, HDMI is one of those features most of us will not use often but when we need it, it's fantastic to have. Like USB Host Mode (Z30), FM Radio (not on Z10), Miracast and Wi-Fi Direct.

    My mother is in a facility for a while so during a visit I checked her TV and found it had HDMI ports. I brought a cable the next visit and showed her pictures of some events she was unable to attend. My sister with the iPhone had no clue if she could do that.
    What??? I got mine for my z10 for 19$ and its only like 40cm

    Agreed, and one of the greatest things about it is its low tech simplicity.

    As long as the TV or projector has an HDMI port, you plug the phone in, it works.

    Great for home viewing, great for presentations.

    Also great for teaching colleagues how to get the best from their phone as I was doing yesterday!

    My Z10 is my media center.

    HDMI out
    Netflix
    tTorrent
    BlackBerry World
    MLB at Bat
    VLC (for the odd missing codecs)
    Streaming from network TV websites through the browser
    ...

    That's just for video, options for music and audio are endless.

    Don't fall for the marketing hype of Monster and those other companies. As long as it's HDMI 1.3, it would be good for streaming. If you want low prices, order via monoprice. I've ordered multiple cables from them and have never had a problem. Longest one I've ordered was 25 ft (7.62 metres) priced under $20.

    Test out Netflix, or hulu (if you live in US).

    Also, because the z10 and pb both play flash very well you can go to your fave tv channels website and stream the last few episodes of any show.

    I bought a package of 5 hdmi wires for $15 on amazon, sold 3 to my friends for $3 a piece (kept one for backup just in case) and haven't looked back since.

    I'm also a teacher, and the computers at the schools are very slow, if I don't want to carry my own laptop on a given day I just use my pb and send the slide show or prezi to the pb and use that. It is great for maximum entertainment value and portability.

    No, but that's because a MacBook cannot accept HDMI input (no laptop that I'm aware of can). A MacBook with an HDMI port would only work as an HDMI out, to allow the MacBook to be connected to a TV or other display.

    A few HDMI capture cards exist, but they only work with HDMI streams that do not contain HDCP protection, which essentially limits them to accepting inputs from video cameras.

    Yes Iove HDMi port in bb10, I bought the 10 feet cable from Crackberry and I watch movies every day from Primewire.ag on my LED TV. I use my PlayBook and my Z10 as my main TV entertainment system, and my Z30 as remote control for my PB.

    Some newer gaming laptops have HDMI inputs.

    OP....if you do power point presentations, then check out BlackBerry Express. It's free, easy to throw great presentations together on the fly. Also check out the export feature as an email. Put photos and text directly on someone's email screen.

    I've heard a lot of people talking about the joys of using Hdmi out for presenting, but I'm wondering - how do you do a presentation with you device strung to a cord connected to the wall /projector?

    I usually give prezi/powerpoint presentations with a laptop hooked up (either VGA or wireless via Epson easymp) but the laptop is stationary. I am not. I use a small handheld clicker to advance slides that way I can move around.

    Is there something I'm missing, or is everyone just in a different use case, where they are standing behind a podium and it doesn't matter that they are tethered via hdmi?

    Also, why can't I use dlna to present a powerpoint? It works fine for pictures, movies, and music...
