    I just read about NFS coming to Android on June 4th. I know these games are lower resolution, but how will they look playing through HDMI on a big screen TV?

    I know its not going to be anything close to PS3 or XBOX quality, but will it be a "cool" feature, or completely unusable?

    Thanks

    We don't yet know if you will be able to output everything through the hdmi port, or just videos. Since all we have seen is videos being output.

    I found this by randomly searching Google.

    "The graphics were sharp and it looked really nice when the phone was connected through its HDMI output to a huge projection screen."

    I appears that you can output games through the HDMI, this is good news for any other application out there too that may benefit from HDMI.

    Why? This isn't an iPhone to iPad conversion. I could suck but doesn't necessarily, unless I am missing something.
