    I got my android tablet in a few days ago after I returned the random one I got off ebay.. and its been a nonstop frenzy of app downloading :D

    I asked to see if a micro projector would work with an android tablet... and the consensus was yes as long as the projector has hdmi.

    Question is has anyone tried it?? My aaxa tech m2 projector came a while ago but I have been hesitant to try it out. I don't want to mess anything up on either the projector or my tab.

    So its more of a curiosity thing..

    Thanks

    I took my hesitation and threw it out the window! I couldn't resist seeing how it would look if I hook my android tab to a projector. It's not super crazy hd quality, but it's still pretty cool for what it is. I snapped a few quick pictures.

    I plugged my X5A into the projector at work. It has a HDMI connect. It worked great

    What if you don't have the HDMI port? I suppose there will be a USB adapter for video output eventually, like the Palm had. I actually saw a video presentation made with a Palm.

    There is a USB to HDMI and SVGA and DVI. The problem is I have no idea if compatible with a tablet. The worst part is these converter/adapters are NOT cheap. $60 or more to as high as $140USD.

    e, you'd be better off upgrading to a better device, or buying one with HDMI in the first place.
