The new iPad2 that begins shipping on March 11th will connect to your projector with an HDMI cable using a $39 dongle, giving you access to over 350,000 apps for your projector.
These apps, like YouTube and Hulu Plus, are also found on many Blu-ray players and standalone media players (like Roku and Apple TV) that can be connected directly to projectors or integrated into home theater systems.
The first article of a new Apps series featured on our sister site, HDTVSolutions, is on Netflix, perhaps the most popular streaming movie provider in the country. Future reviews will look at other movie apps like Vudu and CinemaNow as well as music apps like Pandora and Slacker.
