Ideally Samsung should supply the connector along with phone. Being a new technology, we might find difficulty in getting an affordable, quality connector. Lets hope for the best :)
Garry, The Galaxy SII does not need HDMI port. It will be the first phone with the new mobile high-definition link that runs through the mini usb port. It will allow for HD content to be outputted using mini usb. Therefore no need for a separate HDMI port.

[deleted post]Don't worry, because they will mention it. We are not perfect, right? :)

Nokia is just a follower :)
12 megapixels on a phone is just a joke and the pics are so big, then you need a huge memory!
A good 5 megapixels camera is enaugh on a phone.
hello yes it is nice phone best android
put no body tell SAM sung best camera
i compare camera between galaxy i 9000 vs n8
completely n8 much much better picture quilty and video n8 better also sell shop test it say nokia better
also samsung not voice canceled by detached microphone sound is bad quilty like htc sound this is not perfect also sam sung until now use plastic design not high quilty phone with high price
and samsung nice lcd with super ambled plus
also processor is perfect
note many people interest with 1080p video camera
i see not rely def rent between 1080 or 720 with not hdmi
also why 720 or 1080 not rely def rent
if any one read game fifa 2009 ps3 is 1080 p
and 2010 and 2011 all games now is 720 with no def rent colder i found
any way i wait until apple for new i phone
AnonD-252, 21 Feb 2011The problem with micro-USB to HDMI is that no TV yet aupport charging the phone this way and w... moreSo many people have given the youtube link and still the stupid assumption that it cannot charge the phone while watching HDMI on TV.
The video shows a simple connector which WILL allow you to charge your phone while watching HDMI on current HDTV's. In future, once TV adapt MHL technology, we can avoid this typical connector.
Just to add, like how the chargers (usb) are common for leading cell phone manufactures now, MHL will be the standard for HDMI. It means Nokia, SE,LG etc will have the MHL soon.

MHL Supported by Sony Toshiba Nokia Silicon Image & Samsung with the SGS II being the first mobile phone
to have it from what I gather this would mean (JUST A GUESS OK) that the SGS II has a double HML connector WITH a HDMI adaptor supplied. just because the HML is a new feature and NOT on H/W.
I would expect shortly after HML-HDMI adaptors and HDMI-HML adapator to be sold as products get shipped with HML ports as standard
Espen research !! is that guy for real ??
OPTMUS 2X WTF
THIS IS JUST MY GUESS BASED O.K.
