We've all been waiting on the official HTC Evo 4G HDMI dock, and that wait is finally over. We now have the official dock with which we can output high-definition video from our phone to our television -- and charge it at the same time.
And it's that simple. Inside the box you have the dock, and a 6-foot -- that's 72 inches, folks -- HDMI cable. And that's all you need to get going. Plug one end of the HDMI cable into the dock, and the other end into your phone. Plug your Evo into the dock, and you're good to go.
The dock itself is nicely weighted and has four little rubber feet to keep it in place. It's made of a black glossy plastic, which means it looks great but is one heck of a fingerprint magnet, if you worry about that sort of thing. Your phone sits upright, at a slight angle. It takes just a tad of force to plug it in and take it out, and that means we're not worried about it coming out accidentally.
The rear of the dock has a couple of ports -- one for the included HDMI cable, the other for a microUSB charger, so you can keep your phone juiced while you watch video and slide shows on your television.
