iPad HDMI video output via a dongle

One of the most infuriating aspects of the iPad hardware is the lack of HDMI output. Sure it has VGA output but it is limited to 4:3 aspect ratio which isn't much good unless you plan on watching late 90's TV shows. It seems almost inevitable that Apple will add full HDMI output to a future iPad, but until it does why not check out the brand new HDMI Dongle from USBFever.

We have yet to find out the all important details about the actual output resolution, but we do know that it doesn't support video that has been protected using Apple's very own FairPlay DRM. Given the amount of DIVX playback apps now available for the iPad, VLC being the most renowned but certainly not the most capable, this restriction may not prove to be too much of an issue for many.

Here's the spec:

- This HDMI Adapter is compatible with iPad, iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G.
- Supports transmit the Video and Audio to HD TV or HDMI AV device
- Easily plug and play,no external power supply required,no need to jailbreak.
- Support 720P/1080P High Ddfinition signal output
- Support videos, movies, MTV, Podcast, Youtube(online), photos etc....
- Support online video on internet webpage(support QuickTime)
- Support online FM radio, MP3(iPhone4), photos on Powerpoint.
- The HDMI adapter is a small box, not the HDMI cable, very easy to carry to anywhere you like.

We hope to have our hands on the HDMI Dongle shortly.
