Though it's hard to get excited about HDMI cables in themselves, there's been a development by the HDMI Licensing Committee that means a new connector type should make it easier for mobile devices to interface with other high definition gear.
This is great news, given the increasing number of mobile phones and mini camcorders that are capable of shooting in a high definition format.

The HDMI Type D Micro connector is about half the size of the Type C mini one, yet it delivers equivalent mechanical strength and electrical characteristics.
As an emerging, licensed standard, it's expected that manufacturers of mobile devices will build in the Type D connector, with other companies creating corresponding cabling to enable connection to high definition TVs, projectors and other display devices.
