Samsung galaxy tab PDMI connector

13 posts in this topic

Hi

I've been reading all the reviews of the tab and they mention that it has a PDMI connector. Does this mean we will potentially have a whole new range of accessories to play with? Any thoughts on whether tab chargers and the like will work with our perfectly proportioned streaks?

Thanks

The Galaxy Tab's 'PDMI' connector looks like an inverted Apple connector. There's a post that shows the black Galaxy Tab connector in that photo next to a white iPod cable, and they look like mirror images. Both are different from the Dell PDMI connector.

My understanding from the pin outs is that the Streaks PDMI connector is industry standard and that Apples is not.

Has anyone heard differently?

I don't know about the data lines, but I used a multimeter to confirm that the + - and GND pins are standard PDMI quite a while back

More a case of the Samsung's connector not being PDMI standard, rather it's just basically an upside down apple connector which, as has been pointed out, is completely different to the Streak connector. The Pins / hardware available on the Samsung may or may not offer all the features of the PDMI interface but apple's isn't PDMI at all so obviously won't.

I tried this one myself...

You can force it in but it wont charge or detects that there's a cable plugged in.

Guess we have to wait for the chinese/taiwanese to make cheap ones
