    CM6 for Evo 4G in the works, will bring BT HID profiles, full HDMI and more [Video]

    What good is a phone with a Cyanogen FroYo ROM? Well, for those of us following CyanogenMod's progress know that Cyanogen and his team of merry developers are hard at work building CM6 for the HTC Evo 4G. Cyanogen's work is certainly second-to-none, and while we wait in anticipation, we have a few teasers on what to expect on your Evo 4G in the near future.

    First off, expect the front and rear cameras to be fully functional with CM6. Secondly, Bluetooth HID profiles will be enabled. This will allow you to pair and connect keyboards, mice, and Bluetooth devices. CM6 will even have an option to implement a mouse cursor, which will allow you to peruse your device with a mouse, as if it were your Desktop PC. And finally, expect to see fully-working HDMI-out. Currently, HDMI-out is limited to playing user-created videos, but soon you will be able to display anything on your phone via HDMI-out.

    Check out a rather blurry video by chemlabshade, showcasing BlueTooth HID on the Evo:

    Eventually, the idea will be for you to be able to hook your Evo 4G to a monitor via HDMI-out, and use HID profiles to connect a keyboard and mouse, thus creating a pseudo-desktop workstation. Let's hope we see some of these unique CM6 features on other Android devices as well!

    Actually, this is not true. I just hooked up my EVO to my 52" HD TV and got quite a bit to work. TV.com worked flawlessly. So did YouTube. Basically everything I tried worked. I'm not even sure if all the content was HD or not. The HD content definately worked and it looked great.

    HDMI upgrades are coming - thankfully

    So, is it already working? I guess I haven't checked in a couple of weeks.

    thanks for the updated info. May i ask, can you display anything on your phone, like while you are within your homescreens, or while you are running apps? This is what i truly mean about "full hdmi"

    Homescreens and other stuff displays on your phone. Only the content or video you display on your tv does not show on your phone at the same time.
