[citation][nom]intercollector[/nom]1080p video processor looks promising. Dare we stream video from our phones to our televisions using HDMI?http://www.newphoneinfo.com[/citation]
Since the video part of this new soc isn't capable of outputting 1080p the answer is a definitive no.
Ah, but there is hope for some sort of HD video from a cell phone. The Motorola Droid 2 has an HDMI port, the eeeKeyboard uses wireless video, ATI just released a video card that does graphics over the Internet, I think Sony and Intel just announced a TV with a CPU in it, put those features together and there is hope.
But why would you want to use a phone as a source for 1080p on your TV?
Don't you already have a kick @$$ PC connected to your home entertainment system?
And if you are in a hotel room without your PC, I don't think you are planning on watching videos.

It's called universal interoperability. We nearly got there with everything connecting by USB, but we have got a long way to go till everything works with everything else. I don't mind companies making money, I really don't, but at the expense of being tied to a single device to watch or listen to content is an unreasonable restriction. Thats why I will never ever buy music from iTunes. One day there may be a program and a device that replaces the iPod and iTunes as the dominant music player, but will the iTunes music work? No.
This goes to the heart of that, if I have a collection of HD videos and dont have the PC near the TV, it would be nice to be able to transfer the videos to a portable device and plug into the TV. In this case it isn't a phone per-se, i'm just using it as a glorified playback device. You could say that I should just have a dedicated video playback device near the TV and a separate phone, but there will always be a sector of the market that wants to have a single device that does it all.
What I really want is if someone could shrink my full tower PC down to the size of a phone, wirelessly transmit full HD to any monitor or TV nearby, burn BluRay or DVD to a nearby wireless burner, print to a nearby wireless printer, 100Mb broadband wirelessly anywhere in the world, if there are no monitor or TV nearby I want it to project a user-manipulable hologram in front of me, I want it to be able to install any operating system I want including OSX even though I wont, I want it to install any software I own, allow any future CPU, RAM, HDD or Graphics to be upgraded without having to replace the whole thing, I want it to be able to play any of my media collection, iron my shirts, make me a coffee, give me a foot massage, tell me next weeks winning lottery tickets and keys to the playboy mansion.
