I am aware of the screens all around us, the point seems to me getting the wire out of the box. Could it be redirected to the USB-paths, so that the USB-connector became a DVI-disguised-as-USB? It doesn't have the amount of wires needed, so the available wires had to be multiplexed. In the USB-to-DVI/HDMI/WE(whatever)-converter the signals have to be demuxt again. 

Would the "cameraconnector" (the extra connection to the back of the phone) allow for this kind of signalling?

I hope to develop some programming skills, and make an "allmightymouse" out of our phone: (2D/3D) acceleration instead of a ball/led and mouse buttons onscreen. Later on with button profiles per application. Don't hold your breath though..;-)
