#3 Miracast: From Tablet and Smartphone to TV



Miracast is Google’s version of Apple’s Airplay Mirroring. With Miracast users can directly stream internet TV shows and movies from their Smartphones and tablets to their television. Based on the 802.11 networking protocol, Miracast is the trade name for Wi-Fi Direct or Wi-Di. Google boasted on Miracast’s potential to change the whole connectivity landscape between Smartphone’s and television.



#4 Multi-User support:



The Android 4.2 comes with a multi-user support feature. The new aspect allows customers to create multiple profiles in a single tablet, secured by a login-id. Although exclusive for tablets, the multi user support allocates fun loving clients with appropriate home-screens, backgrounds, widgets, apps and games, while business users can have their own unique tablet experience. The profiles are separated by distinctive login ids and passwords and even finger print protection in high-end tablets.
