Real Racing 2 HD for iPad 2 can run on your TV at full 1080p

Posted in iPad by Reuben Drake on March 27th, 2011

When Apple unveiled the iPad 2, they also advertised a new video converter that was designed to mirror whatever is displayed on the tablet’s screen to an external HDMI display by upscaling content to full HD 1080p resolution. This one plays nice with any third-party app and when it comes to games, the $39 Apple Digital AV Adapter upscales graphics from the iPad’s native 1024 by 768 pixel resolution to full HD 1920 by 1080 resolution.

That means you won’t have those annoying black bars on your screen. Don’t you hate those? The PowerVR SGX543MP2, the GPU unit of the A5 chip can drive full 1080p 3D graphics. TouchArchade says that the next update to Firemint’s Real Racing 2 HD will enable full 1080p video output in 30 frames per second. That’s without upscaling.

Samsung hopes to sell 10 million 3D TVs this year, LG 5 million

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on February 19th, 2011

You and I have simple dreams. Pay the bills, take care of kids, watch some good TV, maybe go out and have fun once in a while. Folks like Samsung have bigger hopes and dreams, like wanting to sell 10 million 3D TVs this year. That would be up five times from the two million it sold last year, so the goal is ambitious.

LG is keeping it more real, planning to sell 5 million or so. We are guessing they won’t reach these numbers as a result of consumer demand for 3D, but more likely because almost all new TVs will be 3D-capable. In the end, they don’t care how they do it, as long as they have the sales and the bragging rights.

Sony announces 3 New BRAVIA TVs

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on February 8th, 2011

Sony Japan has announced three new BRAVIA-branded TVs, and surprise, (Maybe not that much of a surprise) none of them support 3D. But these TVs do offer some nice features, like a 500GB hard drive and the ability to transfer content from the hard drive to external hard drives via USB.

That beats 3D in my book. The flagship model is the 40-inch KDL-40EX52H which features an LED edge-lit display with full HD resolution, a double digital TV tuner, Ethernet port, 10W x 2ch speakers and 3 HDMI ports. It’s priced at $1,800.
