HTC Unveils a DLNA-based ‘Media Link’ for Handset TV Streaming

Excellent. HTC is jumping on the DLNA bandwagon with Samsung and Motorola by including DLNA support in its new handsets — specifically the Desire HD and Desire Z. The phones will be able to wirelessly stream video/movies (up to 720p), photo, and music content stored on the device to DLNA-enabled HDTVs or to standard HDTVs via its new Media Link adapter with HDMI out. I’m curious how the HTC Sense interface for DLNA streaming is going to look (Samsung’s AllShare isn’t bad, but there’s always room for improvement). Lets hope other Android/HTC Sense users will be getting DLNA support in a future update as well. Planned availability: Q4 2010 (Price: TBD). [via]
