    I'm not sure about VGA, but there are some that are doing HDMI (like the Dawa D7).

    Unless they explicitly say HDMI or VGA port, don't expect it. Hell, even if the port is there, it's no guarantee it's working properly (like the blind 2nd USB port on the aPad). SmartQ V7 has HDMI (which is even functional after some firmware update rounds).

    Acer Iconica A500
    I have an Acer Iconica A500 tablet ($400, dual core, 1GB) and it can output to VGA using the following adapter from HP. $30
    HP HDMI to VGA Display Adapter | HP® Official Store

    You also need a mini hdmi to standard hdmi adapter and a standard vga cable. Not all devices put out enough power from their hdmi port to power this converter but I can confirm that the Acer Iconica series does. It's likely that other tablets do also but I've heard that phones generally do not.

    . . . Sounds like a to-do list item for next-gen tablet designers!! Somebody start calling!
