External viewer for Hasselblad CFV-50?

The screen on the back of the CFV-50 is so small and coarse that I wonder if there is a way to review photos in the field right after they are taken on an external device like an iPhone or phablet that has a high quality screen? I see the CFV-50 back has a Firewire output. Could this be used for this purpose.
It would also be nice to zoom in and pan to check focus.
Thanks.

The Firewire jack on the back allows tethered operations with any firewire equipped computer/laptop. You can use Phocus and LR software for tethered operations.

The input jack into the laptop can be FW800 or FW400 (a second FW 800/400 cable should have been supplied with the camera back).

However, while tethered you can also use Phocus Mobile with an iPhone or iPad:
