    The Apple website says: ALL iOS 4 devices will stream Airplay

    Really? Hard to believe my old iPhone 3G will be able to do it? My kids have our old 3G's (wife and I upgraded to the 4) as a iPod touch like device, would be cool if they could put content on their and stream it without having to wake our Mac from sleep etc.

    I don't see why it wouldn't be able to do audio as it's just streaming over wifi. That's not that processor intensive. I doubt it'll do video though.

    Pretty sure it will do audio, photo slideshows, and even video just fine. From what it looks like, all it does is start sending the raw data to the Apple TV. While that in itself requires some processing power, it is actually less intensive than video playback, which the iPhone would no longer be doing at that point.
