With Media Link HD it will be possible to stream HD content to a HDTV. But how to copy a HD movie, for instance, to One X, if it doesn't support SD Card and internal SD partition doesn't support files bigger than 4Gb?

Any ideias?

According to Anandtech's review of TF Prime:

"Android File Transfer won't push over a file greater than 4GB so the first thing I tried was ripping a portion of A Quantum of Solace (BD) and sending over a 40Mbps High Profile 1080p MKV of it. (...) External NTFS volumes are supported and the sdcard file system supports files greater than 4GB in size, so I copied a 15GB 1080p Blu-ray rip of A Quantum of Solace from a USB stick to the Prime."

But the One X doesn't have USB host, as far as I know.

so basically we have a device capable of streaming 1080p HD quality video but it cannot support storage of such files due to the typical large size conflicting with internal storage system?

ok, so... am I being a dumbass here ? or am I reading it right:

"so I copied a 15GB 1080p Blu-ray rip of A Quantum of Solace from a USB stick to the Prime"
I do believe this means that he sent the 15GB file to his phone... therefore, it is possible.

About having usb host capability:
"All three handsets have a USB Host enabled micro USB port, which means users will be able to connect them to USB accessories and to an HDTV or monitor with the right adapter"

Thanks for the confirmation casca!

So basicly as I understand it he is saying...

When Phone is connected to a PC you cant transfer files larger than 4gb to it.
However when a USB Storage Deivce is connected directly to the phone via USB Host you can transfer files bigger than 4gb to the phone?

Seems a little wiered... I understud the limitation for transfering 4gb+ files to an SD card was due to it being formated with FAT32 but the internal storage in the phone wont be FAT32 will it?

That's not how I understand it. It could also mean that the phone itself cannot hold 4GB+ files but it can read or write them from an external usb device. So you can stream your movies directly from the usb drive over the phone.

But I might be wrong..
