So far as I've been able to come up with is a best guess.

 

(1) This press release (link) says:

 

"Nvidia said the Kin phones are the first Tegra-powered smartphones, and that the chips bring advanced graphics capabilities, such as 720p video playback capabilities, with the low-power consumption needed by mobile phones."

 

(2) Since this phone is compatible with the Zune software and in light of the above press release excerpt, then it's possible these are the specs for video playback for the Kin phones:
