PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Originally stemming from MeeGo, birthed under Nokia's watch, Sailfish has since gone its own way and is maturing into a mobile platform getting ready for launch. This week at the Mobile World Congress, we tracked down Jolla and Mosconi again, getting the opportunity in the process to check out a live Sailfish demo. We check out how notifications work, look at the Sailfish take on a status bar, and get to see the media player with all its gesture support." By far the most unique and interesting of the alternative mobile platforms. Very fancy.

Do you know if the hardware that's used in tablets actually supports a secondary HDMI display or if it can only clone the primary display?



If the device has an HDMI port then it is safe to say it can drive an HDMI display. But there are many other questions about the specific chipset, CPU/GPU, and other components before you could determine if it can drive its main display and the external display separately. I don't think there is any generic answer to your question.

If the device has a host mode enabled USB port (many newer tablets do) then it is quite possible to run a secondary display through the USB port.
