This has me a little interested, the fact this new dongle will work with iPhone 4.

http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC953ZM/A?mco=MTY3ODQ5OTY

The way it reads though is that unlike with the iPad 2, other iDevices can only output certain videos/apps to the external display, not complete mirroring like the iPad 2 does.

I assume this is a limitation of the hardware rather than the iOS or is there a glimmer of hope that iOS 4.3 will fix this for all iDevices?

It will do mirroring, just that all iDevices will out put at 720p; iPad 2 will output at 1080p.

really can't see a need for this. It's not like you use your iphone as your media player do you? and the cable is so freaking small.

I agree with mushion, it needs to be wireless, or you need DLNA server on the phone.

Because DLNA is standard (yes I know Apple ignores this). And does Apple TV pull off of an iPad or iPhone?

The iPad 2 is the only device that supports mirroring.
