HDelight streams Full HD conent wirelessly from the iPad for $140
Apple's AirPlay has its limitations regarding which apps play kosher with it, and which officially don't. HDelight promises to mirror your iPad 2's screen on your big HDTV wirelessly, regardless of which app is active, and what 1080p content you are running:
"Having the HDelight means users are not tethered to the area around the HDTV set while enjoying the many benefits of the new iPad 2. Instead, one can imagine the iPad 2 as an over-sized touch-screen remote for the HDTV, and it couldn't be more intuitive – now that the iPad 2 gets wireless 1080p mirroring, whatever you see on the iPad 2 will be whatever you see on the TV, with no latency.", according to Robert Lo, CEO of Xpike Innovations.
HDelight is built around the WHDI technology to stream uncompressed 1080p video across the room to your TV. Granted, both the transmitter and receiver are a tad on the unwieldy side, plus you have to get that very special HDMI cable from Apple to plug into the transmitter, but some might find HDelight useful nonetheless. The price for the whole kit is $139.99, compared to the Apple TV "hockey puck", which goes for mere $99.

and this is why the PlayBook is so much better. You can use HDMI out with full 1080P and still use the device for other things. Both Android tablets and the iPad suck in this same way.
Yes, I know it's not WiFi. . . but then I don't need anything other than a $2 HDMI cable--no Apple TV, not stupid dongles, no other tech devices to make it work, etc. . .
