Want hardware decoding support for 720p H.264 and a string of other formats on your windows mobile device? Well then nVidia thinks it has an answer for you in the form of its new APX 2500 application processor. This little chip will decode the previously mentioned format as well as VC-1/WMV9 and MPEG-4, also being able to encode in both 720p H.264 and MPEG-4. If that's not enough, it supports the regular audio formats (MP3, WMA etc.) plus HDMI 1.2 to provide video output at 720p or output for monitors at resolutions up to 1280x1024. Sounds pretty promising, and hopefully they have managed to do all of this without ballooning power demand, which is all important in mobile devices of course.

The APX 2500 will be on display at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, and we might see more of it around by this upcoming summer.
