K-X connection to TV or Tablet

Is it possible to connect K-X directly to either a TV screeb or a laptop or a tablet?

You will need a Mini-USB to composite video cable to attach to a TV. The K-x does not support live view tethering to a laptop or tablet.

Page 221 of the manual.

Pic related, from the K-x manual.

The AV device could be a standard sized TV, or something cool like a 5 inch Lilliput external monitor...

I've actually inquired about this being ported to Android for tablets/smart phones and the author said it is a possibility in the future, just not much info of if and when.
