    Put Android on a device meant for gaming, provide HDMI Out connectivity, load up a sweet game, connect it to a big freaking TV and what do you get? The potential for an amazingly kick butt gaming experience. Decide for yourself as this guy plays Speed Forge 3D on the ODROID: When I initially saw [...]

    The video demonstrates what could be a very promising future relationship between Android platform & Gaming!!

    The other thing I DID notice being the HDTV SportsFan, gamer & movie buff that I am...

    There is quite a bit of delay in what happens on screen on the android device, and when it happens on the big screen. This is latency.
    The latency between a video source and the displayed image
    Issue CAN be reduced with turning on Gaming Mode on your HDTV.
    The lower the latency the better.

    How many FPS (Frames Per Second) can your TV handle?
    How many FPS is the game programmed?

    The HDTV link below is what I use to watch all my HDTV programming, BluRays, & Gaming on...
    46" LED HDTV UN46B8000 46" 1080p LED HDTV - LED TV - Televisions | SAMSUNG

    Gaming is a great experience on it. Very little latency with gaming mode turned on. Like Latency doesn't exist.

    This post would be a WHOLE LOT more in depth, but I am out of time.

    The video demonstrates a VERY promising future of Android Gaming.
    The possibilities are endless...
    Looking forward to Android Gaming! :D

    I don't really see the point of the hdmi out...this is a mobile device and you use it when there's no TV around. Otherwise you'd use a game console like an xbox.
    They also should've made one of those 3 dpads into a trackball for 360 degree control.

    I personally don't need to connect an android device to an hdtv to enjoy a game!
    But heck, an added plus could never hurt! :p
