What Is the input next to where the cartridge goes???

13 replies 534 views Edited Mar 1, 2012

Does anyone know what the port to the right of the game card slot is? Or maybe what they might use it for in the future? Sure would be great if you could use it to play Vita on a big screen! Also while were at it can you do anything with the sim card slot if you dont want to pay att 3g? Like maybe pop in you cell phone sim card, and use that for 3g (my cell is an att iphone with a data plan).

Everyone speculates that it will be for future accessories that require external power. Maybe they will invent some kind of Vita-HDMI like you said, that would rock

And no, switching the SIM cards wont work.

It has no use yet, read your manual no telling what they will plan to use it for. External display for movies or whatever would be nice though

It is a conspiracy, they will not tell until the world is coming close to an end.

Actually you can swap if you have a 3G iPad AT&T sim card and the vita sim card since they use the same service and the same plan , but you can have both 3G iPad and vita under one plan.  I could imagine that being a pain switching back and forth.

I thought it was so you could stick your wee wee in there, you know, to show how much you really love your vita.

Switching isn't that bad. But be aware that the iPad is a micro sim. I bought a micro sim to sim adapter from Amazon. $1.31 got me 2 of them.

And that slot is waaaaaayyyy to big for my wee wee.

I dont think that port on the vita will ever do anything.

Remember the phone jack on the guitars for guitar hero that where never used for anything ever, yeah i think this will become another one of those
