Dell's choice of an apparently proprietary connector for its Streak
was one of the notable frustrations in our review of the Android MID
, but it turns out not everything about the port is non-standard. Owners over at the Pocketables forum
have been digging through the specifications and even doing pin-to-pin testing of the Streak's HDMI dock, and have discovered it pretty much matches the PDMI standard
. The discovery opens up the possibility of cheaper third-party USB cables than Dell's own $19.99 accessory, together with other potential hacks.
