An annoying drawback of this phone (true for all carriers)

What is it with these new phones lacking an HDMI port?

My HTC phones and Motorola phones had one. Even my year old Samsung Droid has one.

On the Galaxy S III (like the Galaxy S II) they require a dongle to convert Micro USB, and then you need a special one so that you can power the phone because you used the port. Even more annoying is that the part is expensive, and they changed it for this particular model, so none of the ones that worked with the other Galaxy phones work on this one.

Even the dock lacks an HDMI port. I guess if you want to compete with Apple you have to constantly require new proprietary dongles to make you stuff work with industry standard cables like Apple does. Perhaps the Galaxy S IV will have a non standard charging port, fixed RAM, and only allow the installation of applications from the Samsung App store, then it would be a real "Iphone Killer".

Really annoying and stupid.
