The OQO Model 2+ has built-in hardware accelerated decoding (Poulsbo chipset using Intel GMA500 integrated graphics with the PowerVR core), which fully supports both 720p and 1080p HD content. Although, for full HD resolution, connect the OQO to an external 720p/1080p display using HDMI.
The OQO model 2+ support HDMI monitors up to 1920×1200 resolution. However, there is one hiccup. It does not send voice over it. Anyway, I hope to see more UMPC and Netbooks coming with HDMI ports so that people can connect their devices to the external displays that support hi-def and can enjoy HD content in all its glory.
