New Neflix app for next-gen Google Nexus 7 will stream 1080p video
Netflix had used standard definition on all Android devices regardless of what the resolution is on specific Android phones. Unlike most apps that update first for iOS before making the same changes on other platforms, the 1080p streaming is coming to Android before it hits the Apple App Store. While no iOS device currently has an app that streams to it in HD, Netflix no doubt will eventually offer such a service to the next-generation Apple iPad, if not the current model.
The next-generation Google Nexus 7 will launch on July 30th.
