    Which tablets can play HD content?

    Now before you say that they all can, I know for a fact they can't. Even some with HDMI ports can't actually play real 720P or 1080i mkv files. So which tablets can actually play 1080i movies without hiccup. I would settle for 720p as well but if it can do 1080 then it can do 720.
