This is super exciting news although I am not completely clear.
Can anyone let me know what 'enhancement' is he referring i.e. any idea how this 'enhancement' would differ from the current version.
I am thinking DLNA, or RIM will send us a micro HDMI or anything that will make it possible without additional purchase.

I read this to and wondered at the same thing. I already can output via HDMI to my TV any videos; everything looks, works great. I just presumed that he was referring to the video store.To RIM haters - Why dont you go find a parade and rain on it.

From a NY Times article today....
"Mr. Lazaridis said that RIM would also open an online video store for the PlayBook. While the powerful processor in the device makes it adept at playing video, streaming movies and television programs onto it can be frustrating."New York Yankees

I too am just super excited about 2.0. Why not be? I bought the PlayBook because I liked it, and new improvements mean I'll probably like it more. Not gonna complain about the company I already paid my money to updating my device....9780/.600

Airplay and such isn't suitable for HD. I'll take a cable with high quality transfer any day.
What I do hope is you will be able to put these streaming movies (or anything else for that matter) in presentation mode. That could be an enhancement.
