Real Racing 2 HD developers demo Full HD 1080p output from an iPad 2 to a big screen TV
Real Racing 2 HD will be one of the first titles that will showcase for the world the benefits of having a dual-core chipset, such as the A5 one on the Apple iPad 2.

For the next edition the developers briefly demoed gameplay on the iPad 2, that was mirrored on a big screen HDTV in Full HD 1080p resolution, via the new HDMI dongle. The 10" screen on the iPad 2 is used for the map and race stats, whereas the pure fun is left for the 1920x1080 resolution of your HDTV, without any black borders or upscaling from 720p.

The visuals look great, and the game is running with 30fps. That's what is expecting us in the future, tablets and smartphones will be slowly crowding out dedicated gaming consoles for the more basic titles, and even for the sophisticated ones. Now make all of this wireless, and we will be sold completely.

Shame its a bit laggy...

your Xoom cant do that!

LOL. . . another clueless comment by an iFAN. Android devices have had HDMI mirroring out for a long time now. Yes, the Xoom does it. . . so sad that you actually think Apple has something others don't.

he meant, the xoom cant do it without faililng. which would be correct. force close, force close, force close. oh wait, the errors stopped. no...the xoom just shut off on its own. yay motorola!

YOU ARE AN IDIOT and obviously haven't used a Xoom. . . you stupid Apple FUD promoter! Why can't idiots like you just piss off and realize other people like non-apple products much better than Apples PiOS????

Do you have the same quilaty games and apps like iPad 2 do?!!!

4. feeler unregistered

@ iOS5 I don't want to buy a tablet for gaming! I use it to go on the web & do other things. You want to play a portable game buy and play a 3DS or even the new PSP when it comes out. Those games are way better than the best games on Apple's pretty weak mobile game line up & for the record it's only a matter of time before the games do come out on the XOOM. Apple's games have no real substantial meat to them, they are all shallow. Remember ipad the original has an over a year headstart on XOOM. Let's see what happens down the road!

Another thing I don't understand is why anyone wants to play an iPad game on a HD TV? Why & what is the point. There are real video game systems out there that are made for HD TV's. This article has no merit. Why play that bull iPad racing game on the big screen when there is Forza on the 360 & Grand Turismo on the PS3. Both are spectacular titles wich offer real game play not weak gyroscope play that is not all to responsive. This is such a pointless article. It's probably written by a Apple geek who probably sucks on a regular console. lol Apple is trying so hard to be what they can never be. Just stick to ripping people off by buying apps that are free on the Android Market! All the good Apple apps are free on Android!

for super android evo: because you never tried an apple.

@ walker I played with an iPad 7 months before it came out last year. We had a development prototype. My father team wrote one of the original apps on the iPad. (I won't say wich app because of legal reasons) I have more time on an iPad than you could ever begin to understand. Trust me Apple is second fiddle to the PC because they don't cater to business. The Apple iPad is not a business tool. Steve Jobs personal phone is not an iphone, it's a Black Berry, again because of it's business applications.

Apple is a toy company (tech toy company). They have no business aspirations, that is why they lag behind PC for everything. Anyone who has ever worked in a business profesional environment knows PC's are all you see. Mac's are in elementary schools, like my son's for instance. When I was in elementary school we had the black & white Mac's & we played the Oregon Trail. As I went to JR High School & High School we used PC's to learn how to type & do basic programing.

My Father's Team loves making Apps for the Android OS better than Apple's OS. He says it's easier and they have to jump though less hoops with Android's OS, than Apple's OS. Don't get my wrong if Apple wants to pay to get an app done for them, they will not say no. Money talks & my Father's company is make loot from both Apple & Android, but he says it's a pleasure to work with the Android OS over the Apple OS. Take it from someone with inside information on both OS's.

can't even come close to Grid or NFS Shift, but it's good for a tablet.

@Super Android Evo I have an iPhone and Android phone iPhone IOS more secure more optimized more smother it has the best apps quilaty only one thing missing in the iPhone Adobe flash even though not that big of deal cuz it makes the phone laggy and slow, and when you asked what the use of HDMI in iPad! Why didn't asked yourself why Android phones has it already before iPad and iPhone and now all Android tab has HDMI?! I think you know that Apple SDK the easiest software development kit unlike Android and Nokia SDK.

It's not hard to have a "smoother os" when it doesn't do half the things another OS does and only runs on one line of devices ;) When iOS gets the flexibility of Android and Apple pulls the stick from its proverbial butt and lightens up on it's draconian control of what I can and can't do with MY device that I purchased from them then I'll consider buying another iOS device. Until then Apple won't see a penny from me.

18. Super Android Evo unregistered

AppleFUD LOL LMAO! It's easy to be smooth when you are a one trick pony. (Apple) Anyone can be smooth when the OS can't do half of what Android OS can do. Android is the fastest growing OS for a reason, & it's not because it's bad that's for sure!

yea, the reason is because there are 500 different devices with the crap OS called android vs. 5 with ios. Yet they just barely manage to pull ahead in market share.

23. Super Android Evo unregistered

@ zuno Dude the iPhone has a head start on Android phones. Of course they are going to have the market share, but you are right Android did pull ahead even with the head start Apple has opps HAD. Innovation is what the people want not the same old same old. (Apple) The OS is good it's just that any crappy phone can run it. Just like Windows any crappy PC can do it. The OS is affected by bad hardware. If iOS was on a crappy phone it would work crappy. Talk with facts not emotion. Android OS is a good OS and it's evolving, iOS not so much. That is why people are leaving Apple for Android! Look at the numbers & you will see the truth. As the saying goes the truth hurts!!!

lol! "Innovation is what the people want not the same old same old." So your saying that every month when 25 "revolutionary" new Android phones are released, they are not the same old same old? Do you live your life with your eyes closed? Every android phone is the same old feel, same old looks, and definitely the same old problems. Android is a complete battery hog and has some of the worst resource management ever. You slap your trusty old Android on the original Iphone and its going to run like shit. It will run iOS just fine. Why do you think your low-end Android phones suck so bad? They are pumped out of the septic tank in record time with barely any QA and hardly function. Well...that could go for any Android phone. I dont use iPhones or iPads and never will own them, but i can tell you that it is by far a superior piece of hardware and software. Even with the headstart that Iphone had (which was barely a year), if Android was truly the badass you claim it is, it should have blown past apple much faster than it did with the amount of devices they have squirted out.

Dude I can't talk to Apple fanboys. Dude you get so worked up, if you iOS was so great you wouldn't get so bent out of shape. Android is on top for a reason. Just face it your iPhone is not the greatest anymore. The design is sweet but you need to put a cover on it so it can work. I know of no Android phone that needs a cover to work right out of the box. So Apple cares about how the phone looks not how it works. Hey you need to chill this shoulden't f your day up, as you would say cause you ain't talking like a human. Just chill and hold your iPhone tight cause the way you protect Apple, it looks like it might return the favor.

27. SadApple unregistered

That's true. . . Android smartphones (only smartphones) now outsell ALL iOS devices. Sad Apple can't maintain a lead with 3 category devices Vs 1.

15. IOS5 unregistered

@ Super Android Evo sorry man but this the true I'm not Android hater but Android has lot of issue any way thanks man for the info :)

@ IOS5 The HDMI is not for gaming is for sharing Photos, Videos & Movies. Something practical. Why do you want to hold an iPad & play the game on a HD TV. That is not practical at all! My Father does this for a living & he swears Android is much easier to make an app then Apple. This is a Pro in a big corp in NYC not some kid in their parents’ house. Trust me. Android has come a long way from what Apple has started. They are taking the smart phone to the future. Anyone will tell you that the Apple OS is getting stagnant! There is no evolution in Apple. Look at Honeycomb that OS a million times better that iOS. Check it out & you will agree!!

20. IOS5 unregistered

@ Super Android Evo Ok I agree but why Android still laggy and there's other thing when you download app from the market doesn't stored on SD slot direct unless if you root the phone other wise it's going to stored on phone memory, don't get me wrong but Android has some issue the best phone with Android os I have ever use it till today and equal to iPhone the nexus s I know this doesn't have staff like other Android flag ship but it's the best when it comes to every day use without any issue:)
