Tablet or phone?
It did, it doesn't now, we hope it may again.
Why they are holding out we don't really know... but they sure let Apple beat them to the punch IMHO... via Mavericks you can now mirror your entire screen to your TV through apple TV. With your phone and iPad as well I believe. I know Google saw this coming... why they didn't try and steal Apple's thunder and release this a while back could be a big mistake. I suddenly have Apple envy.
Get a fast pc and screen cast. Chromecast does it.
I've been through the DLNA craziness (and still use it lol) and I don't intend to repeat it with Miracast.
I can screen cast my phone just by buying a $100 HTC Media Link device - which, I won't.
My old MHL rig removes the convenience of control from my couch but it's cheap and works very well.
I'm sure that an iPhone and Apple TV work great together. If that's what you want, cool.
I'm still interested in Chromecast just for internet content. Different strokes amigo.
