How widely supported is MHL?
Number6 38 weeks ago
I was looking at the specs on a Sony Xperia Tablet Z, and it listed MHL support. I didn’t know what MHL was, so I looked it up: Mobile Hi-Definition Link. It allows you to connect your MHL enabled device to an MHL compatible display using standard micro-USB hardware, and it allows provisioning of power while being used to display output. Sounds pretty good, so far. My HDTV is a couple of years old, so I assume it doesn’t support MHL, but I’ll probably get a new, bigger one soon anyway. Has MHL become a standard feature that I wasn’t aware of, or is it one of those things that has a tiny install base and will likely never catch on?
