a video output to hdmi would be awesome. the ps vita is truly amazing and a video output would just add to the multitude of other features.
Maybe in the future, a mini hdmi port would just up the costs of the vita
The current design doesn't have a port that outputs to a TV. I believe that in 2 or 3 years there will be a red redesign that will incorporate a mini HDMI port. XperiaRay
the debug unit is the same as the retail unit except with different FW, like the PS3. If the debug unit can use the serial port to hdmi cable for TV out, the retail system can do it too. Sony just has to enable it in the FW, and sell the cable too of course.
No one knows what that port does but I'm sure they have something in store for it.
