An important feature is the ability to directly broadcast videos, music, presentation or share screens through miracast. Along with a digitizer, this would make the tablet a very interesting work tool instead of being simply a device to consume content

Indeed it would be very good (for the phone too btw.) in the absence of any physical display connection. I hope the Atom selected allows for Miracast/Intel Wireless Display. It would allow the option of an hdmi dongle or direct connectivity if the display device supports that (like the Dell M900HD).

Miracast doesn't sound like a good idea. It uses H.264 codec internally and it has DRM (according to this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miracast ).

I actually hope for compatibility to airtame which looks like a more open solution compared to miracast and should be runnable on several devices.

Something like Miracast, but probably not Miracast because this is only for Windows. Then you create another problem. Please, Jolla, do your homework and find out what is best. A more universal mirroring tool.

We have plans to investigate Miracast support on the tablet after getting the basics working, most likely in second half of this year.

We are waiting! We several times tried to stream with Jolla, but no result. This is an important thing for us, for then we finally are able to leave my iphone 3GS and our Appletv2 behind. Then streaming from internet on Jolla to tv with for example a Roku will be possible? We very much hope so. Possiblility to stream is also a necessity for Jolla to survive and compete.

But it need not necessarily to be Miracast. A universal cast is best, compatible with Smart tv's, Roku, Amazon Fire.

What about Miracast fo Sailfish X? It is supported on the Xperia X with Android. It would be awesome!

It's the second half of 2020 now. What was the result of your investigation?
