    Curious if I should be expecting this. I know it's probably an unknown, so I guess the question is, do current BB phones support this?

    Asking because I'm an arm chair audiophile that wants to get an external D/A converter and amp to drive my headphones. Yes, I could amp the headphone jack. That is my fallback plan.

    Another question is, will BB10 on either the phone or Playbook do "USB On-The-Go" and other USB functionality (depending on driver support)... meaning...

    - storage support
    - microphone input
    - speaker output
    - mouse and keyboard
    - memory card reader
    - scanner
    - camera plugin support
    - printer support

    The possibilities are endless, but drivers will have to be written for all of this.

    I think a big feature that most people will use immediately will be ability to plug in additional storage like USB keys, camera memory card readers, hard drives, etc. Although USB sound is nice, I feel storage freedom and a solid file browser to let you transfer and manage files will be more important to add first.

    Actually, wondering now if the music players would output a digital stream through HDMI. If so, are there dedicated DACs out there that could convert HDMI audio via HDMI cable? Or couldthat be converted digitally to something a (HDMI to HDMI=>digital coax audio=> DAC) DAC can handle?

    Not sure that amping the headphone output will actually show off the FLAC quality. I'm also searching for answers to this. Headfi.org has some good information on usb output, but the Z10 hasn't been out long enough for the answer yet.
