Samsung Galaxy S II First to Flaunt MHL Port

The Consortium has spoken and the Samsung Galaxy S II heralds the arrival of the MHL.

We’re already impressed with the Samsung Galaxy S II as it is, but one tiny detail about Samsung’s latest Android phone went under our noses during the Mobile World Congress that’s probably just as important as the next feature, and that’s the MHL port. The Samsung Galaxy S II is the first smartphone to ever have the said port which switches the phone into USB data or MHL audio/video modes. A special 5-wire micro-USB to HDMI cable is provided to let you send video and audio to HDMI displays. The MHL cable also allows you to charge your smartphones to HDMI-enabled televisions, although no television is capable of doing that yet, perhaps in Q2 of 2011.

The MHL project was first announced way back in 2008 with the approval of a consoritium that is composed of Nokia, Samsung, Sony, Silicon Image, and Sony. Hit the break and watch the video to know more about the MHL.

Things are starting to heat up as Nvidia might catapult the mobile and tablet device market into the third dimension.

Reports have leaked a snapshot from Nvidia’s presentation for the Mobile World Congress or MWC. And if the rumors and the picture is for real, then it seems Nvidia will be launching Tegra 2 3D processor later this year for future mobile gadgets that will be having, you guessed it, a 3D screen. Based on a Dual Cortex A9 that’s generously clocked to 1.2 GHz, the Tegra 2 3D processor seems to be up to the challenge of setting the trend for future mobile and tablet devices, which may spell trouble to the Nintendo 3DS, Intel and perhaps even the juggernaut we call Apple.

The partnership would have been a sight to see over at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) next month, but Nokia has decided to pursue other options as they continue to lag behind in the US-market where Apple, Blackberry, and Android carrying mobile devices reign supreme.
