By Robin Kwong, Financial Times, June 1, 2010

The Tegra model will be able to handle 1080p HD video playback as well as 3D graphics, but it’s worth pointing out that both Android tablets had HDMI ports, which seems to indicate that Malata expects them both to be able to handle at least some HD video.
