If it's not Airplay compatible you might still be able to do so via a cheap Chromecast. I found a few threads that indicate it can work, even streaming from a Mac.

IMHO they may pull a Nokia using IP aggressively in an effort to slow the decline of their market position. Not that it worked very well for Nokia of course. The early signs are already obvious.

Updating the thread the USPTO examiner again rejected Apple's arguments in support of the '915 "pinch-to-zoom" and still ruled the the patent claims asserted against Samsung invalid. Samusng of course has notified the court of Tuesday's development. http://www.scribd.com/doc/234064676/14-07-15-Samsung-Notice-Re-Developments-in-Apple-s-915-PTAB-Appeal No telling how Judge Koh may proceed at this point. She was very unhappy with the first news of the rejection as she had...
Yup, that's what it looks like. Thx!
FWIW. . . posted on Amazon Japan but pulled in short order. According to the listing the dimensions are 130 x 65 x 7mm with the weight coming in at 113g Fairly iffy perhaps. EDIT: Source link added http://www.loadthegame.com/2014/07/12/iphone-6-listed-amazon-japan-release-date-price/
