    Can you give an example as to why it would be ideal on the iPhone?

    So that people without iPads can play games on your TV, or use educational apps.

    By the By, they have a great screen mirroring app for the iPhone if you jailbreak.

    The iPad has a nice big screen compared to iPhone... Plus I'd like to have access to games that take advantage of it

    it would have been nice to have it on iP4, don't have an iPad, don't need one as well, not much of a reader. But wuld have been nice playing games on HD tv via airplay...

    No, it's not something I'm interested in.

    A great antenna would be nice though.

    Yet.

    Screen mirroring isn't YET on the iPhone.

    I have read that a new one is around the corner though, so wait and see.

    But that's not mirroring, that's just video out. I'd hate to see what 640x960 would look like on a 1920x1080 TV.

    Don't care.

    I have a CRT television, have no intentions of having something shown on TV.

    Doubt it'd look much worse than 1024x768 on a 1920x1080 display

    Yeah, that's exactly what I was thinking. They're probably saving that feature for iPhone 5. I'm not sure if you guys noticed, but in the videos, there's a slight lag between what you do on the iPad 2 and what appears on the TV. It's almost unnoticeable, but if you look carefully, there is. So I guess you definitely need the power of the A5 to do screen mirroring.

    I'm not knowledgable in these areas of screen aspect ratios or resolutions... but if they make the screen bigger, then that would mean more total pixels right? Would that help improve the quality of iPhone 5 mirroring on a TV? Or does the resolution stay the same?
