The Droid X is the second smartphone to get an HDMI out port that allows you to connect the device to a projector or flat panel television. The EVO 4G was the first. In order to use this function, you must first buy a type D HDMI cable (like this one from Amazon for $11, affiliate link). The functionality is a bit limited on the Droid X, though. You can only output images from the gallery. While this is ideal for showing off multimedia recorded with the device, it doesn’t let you display a presentation, YouTube videos, or any other aspect of the Android operating system. Here’s a quick video demo of the HDMI output in action!
