Does the Google Nexus 7 Have HDMI Out?
A lot of people seem to be concerned whether the Google Nexus 7 tablet by Asus has an HDMI port, or if it supports MHL (mobile high-def link) to mirror the screen to another device.
Unfortunately it doesn’t have either, however for the $199 price tag for the 8 gig or $249 for the 16 gig, it’s still hard to complain. It wasn’t really a factor at all when I bought mine, after all if I want to watch a movie on my big screen, I’ll watch it on Blue-Ray, or Netflix, etc. I didn’t buy it as a movie player for my house after all.
There is an option for some basic streaming however. A friend of mine over at Technipages.com posted an article for connecting the nexus to a tv using a free app called Wi-Fi Media made by Cavium (I had to search for Cavium on on the tablet to find it for some reason), along with an HTC Medialink HD.
You still can’t stream from YouTube and such using this, but it will allow you to stream movies and music on your tablet, etc. I haven’t personally used it yet, but I’ve seen some mixed reviews saying that it works, and it’s probably the cheapest way to get it done as well.
