Tablets and Cables

Unfortunately, there are no cabling standards for tablets currently on the market place.  Each tablet manufacturer - whether it be Apple, Google, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble have chosen different paths to allow consumers to hook up their tablet devices to their TVs.  Micro-HDMI would appear to make sense for each of these products to support - but each manufacturer has decided - like Apple - that they want to make another 30 bucks on selling you an adapter first.

Below is partial list of some more popular tablets, and their support of HDMI technology:
