That doesn’t include all iPhone and iPod touch users, however. The app will only support video out on the iPhone 4 and fourth generation iPod touch. If you’re cool with that, and we know you are, you can get the updated app for free right now.
Jensen has a new dock for your iPad, the JiPS-250i. It works with iPads, iPods and iPhones, but the rotating dock is designed specifically for the iPad, allowing users to adjust the display for portrait or landscape viewing. Built-in speakers amplify sound, while a video line-out let’s you attach a separate display.
There’s also a free companion app that features an alarm clock, voice recording, calendar, equalizer, music player, photo album, and social networking integration. A remote control is included.
Samsung’s Galaxy S was originally only able to do video out using a 3.5mm audio jack, which is fine, but not if you want to output high-resolution videos. But now Samsung has introduced a Micro USB to HDMI cable that should make viewing videos from your Galaxy S on your HDTV much easier. We didn’t know that was possible, but we’re game.
The cable will cost $50 and will be compatible with Galaxy S phones like the Samsung Vibrant and Samsung Captivate from T-Mobile and AT&T.
Who would have guessed that you could pump video out of a 3.5mm headset jack? The recently released Galaxy S has been confirmed to offer video out through its 3.5mm headset jack. The international version of the Samsung Galaxy S comes with a TV out option that is built into the display settings, allowing you to pick your TV type (PAL or NTSC).
But you will need the appropriate cable to go from the 3.5mm jack to the standard AV ports on your TV. This mirrors the handset’s display on the TV in real time. We hope the US versions of the Galaxy S will come with this feature, but who knows.
Oh boy, another portable media player from the land of China. But this one is a tad different. It’s the Cube H100HD, not to be confused with the cube B52HD. The “HD” isn’t a total scam since it does support High Definition output, but not surprisingly it can’t handle full HD.
The Cube H100HD sports a 5″ WVGA display, support for all the popular audio and video formats and 720p and 1080i video via the out port. They threw in an e-book reader just in case you are mildly literate too. Oh and an integrated FM radio.
