    Android tablet that can play 1080p x264 mkv videos ?

    I am prospecting the market for a tablet that can function as a media player in the car and in a kid's room, but like the title says, I need it to play 1080p x264 mkv videos (on the tablet screen or via HDMI out). From what I can read, none of the original Tegra 2 tablets can do this, but is there a tablet that can do this? And if yes, which one, what should I buy?

    EDIT: I am referring to hardware capabilities. It is not a problem if I install a 3rd party video player or pay to install additional codecs.

    Hmmm, no replies ? OK, let me put it another way. What Androind phones do you which can play 1080p x264 MKV movies? If a phone can play it, maybe there are tablets on the market that use the same chipset.

    How about the new iPad HD?

    And the new A5x processor whoops up on the Tegra.

    Unfortunately, the iPAD has a few deal-breakers: no 16:9 screen, no native SD card slot (an adapter is one more thing that will be lost), no HDMI output.

    Now getting back to something that might work: the TI OMAP4460 and OMAP4430 chipsets or AMD Fusion C-50 Windows 7 Tablets.

    The OMAP4460 is the one inside the Galaxy Nexus and it plays anything. And there is also a tablet using it, the Archos 101 G9 that comes with 8 / 16 GB flash memory or 250 GB HDD. The 250 HD version is actually perfect for media, it just got upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich and it sells for around 420$ at NewEgg. I am still deciding between the Archos 101 G9 250GB or a Acer Iconia W500 Windows 7 tablet, but so far I prefer the Archos because of the hard drive.

    Has the poor WiFi issue been solved? I must admit the Tegra 3 can play any 1080p x264 file, but the tablets are 100 $ more expensive on average. I must say, in my eyes, the integrated 250 GB hard drive in the Archos is a pretty big plus, so if I fork out the money for a Tegra 3 device, it has to be really worth it.

    The new upcoming Samsung GALAXY Note10.1 is what you want, by the looks of it its based on the extremely powerful Exynos4210 CPU with Mali-400MP GPU, same chipset found in both the international GALAXY S II and GALAXY Note 5.3, the chipset handles any and every HD1080P @30FPS video i through at it, be it MKV, DIVX, FLV, wmv etc...
    Here's the Note10.1: http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_gala..._10_1-4573.php

    iOS sucks at format support, one of many reasons i wont get a iPhone or iPad anytime soon.
