Many of the much talked about tablets that will be with is in the next couple of months include HDMI ports for connecting them up to a TV and playing back video. But what if you don't want to deal with messy cables? Well, Intel might have the answer, assuming you're willing to use an Atom based tablet.

During his opening keynote speech Intel CEO, Paul Otellini, showed a tablet device wirelessly streaming HD video to a nearby TV, using the company's WiDi wireless video streaming technology. This technology transmits the video stream over WiFi and picks it up on your TV via a compatible receiver that plugs into an HDMI port, available for around $100. Clearly, given the otherwise wireless nature of a tablet, having a wireless video streaming solution is a big boon.

Intel has a number of Atom-based tablets here at IDF so we will hopefully get some hands-on time with them over the next couple of days and report back on how they perform in non-video related tasks.
