I would really want to be able to hook up my sailfish mobile device to keyboard, mouse and display to use it as a (light-)desktop solution like Samsung DeX or Microsoft Continuum.

My current requirement would be proper mouse, keyboard and large display support, so I can surf the internet and write/read e-mails.

Try Bluetooth mouse and keyboard, you could get a surprise. If you have an Xperia X you can also try USB mouse and keyboard (provided you use an OTG cable and USB hub).

For anything like this, it would be required to be able to run common desktop applications on Sailfish OS. Currently there's no realistic way to do so.

I should soon receive my Gemini PDA. I would love to use it with Sailfish as productivity device, but currently the only options seem to be Linux Deploy under Android or just a Debian installation.

Oui @cemoi71, c'est à moi. (Note! machine translation)

It does support mouse and keyboard, of course. It is a computer. For the display, we need Miracast support.
