What exactly does this offer that a $7 MHL adapter can't?
It has a little box with extra ports! Woo!

Seriously this is nothing like Continuum other than "they both display stuff on a screen other than the one on the mobile device". They're night and day.

Hopefully it would work with any Android. Slim Port from LG and Nexus was great but the newest Nexus phones don't have it. MHL has been a dog's breakfast, especially with Samsung's reversed polarity fiasco and the need to power the adapter and phone separately but finally MHL seems to have got it right. However which phone maker, apart from Samsung supports MHL? Miracasting barely works and only on some devices. We could do with a universal hard wired way of getting from any Android to a HDTV. Google should be listening. Good luck finding the latest version of MHL for $7 and goodness knows which Galaxy it will work with.
