    ASUS mini hdmi to VGA adapter: first impressions

    Got the ASUS VGA adapter a few days ago (from bottom line telecom), and today was able to try it for the first time, with an overhead video projector in a classroom. Just plugged it in and it works fine. Could not find any way to adjust the hdmi output, so I guess it just figures it out on its own.

    Some minor limitations: you can not use the Transformer's speakers when using this, but the audio out jack works fine so you can plug in an audio jack to the room's speakers if they exist. Also, when using the keyboard, the adapter is a rather heaavy thing hanging off the screen, which in my case made the whole setup just a little unstable. And of course you're stuck with the limited capabilities of the various powerpoint -lite apps avaialble for Android.

    A bigger limitation is that the screen locks in horizontal/landscape mode, so if you were imagining holding the tablet in portrait mode while mirroring the screen via a projector, it seems like you're out of luck.

    Interesting possibilities include drawing on the screen with finger or stylus during a presentation; not so easy to do with a laptop.

    Thanks for the info. How long is the cable?

    And, if you turn your tablet to portrait mode, it doesn't auto-rotate, is that correct? That's how it works with the dock as well. Some applications (like Cut The Rope, for example) with force it to rotate to portrait mode though. What happens with the VGA output at this point? Everyone has to twist their necks unless the projector gets rotated, or output cuts off?

    It's about 10.5 inches, including connectors; flexible part is about 7.5 inches.

    Don't have an app that forces portrait mode, but if you turn off auto-rotate when in portrait and then plug in the adapter, it rotates anyway.
