    I highly doubt it. There are products to do this on a PC but it requires a program running on the PC that looks like a video card to the OS.

    No, but that's what the Thrive's full size HDMI is for. It can connect to Monitors and TVs. If your monitor only has a (white) DVI port then simply use a HDMI to DVI adapter. If your monitor only has analog (blue) VGA port then you'll need an HDMI to VGA box. Alternatively you could try this app from the Android Market - iDisplay - https://market.android.com/details?i....virtualscreen

    I have a dongle that allows connecting a monitor to a USB port on my notebook, but it requires a Windows driver to work, so it wouldn't work on the TT (unless they have an Android driver, which I doubt, but I haven't checked). It's made by IOGear, if you want to check into it.

    Thanks for the very useful information. I was unaware that HDMi to DVI adapters even existed. I'll have to pick one up so I can link my Thrive to my SAMSUNG SyncMaster 231T monitor in my office when I want large screen viewing capability.
