Does the Google Nexus 7 Support MHL?
A lot of people seem to be concerned whether the Google Nexus 7 tablet by Asus supports MHL (mobile high-def link) to mirror the screen to another device, or has an HDMI out port.
The short answer is no, it doesn’t support MHL , nor does it have an HDMI out port, but for the $199 price tag for the 8 gig or $249 for the 16 gig, it’s still hard to complain. I can’t say that it was a concern when I purchased mine, but at the same time I bought it as a nice tablet for a great price, not as a portable streaming device.
However, there is an option for some basic streaming if it’s something you must have in a tablet. A friend of mine over at Technipages.com posted an article for connecting the nexus to a tv using a free app called Wi-Fi Media made by Cavium (I couldn’t find it by name, I had to search for Cavium to find it on the tablet), along with an HTC Medialink HD.
This still won’t let you mirror your screen, but it will allow you to stream movies, music, and pictures saved on your tablet. I haven’t personally used it yet, but I’ve seen some mixed reviews saying that it works, and it’s likely the cheapest way to get it done as well.
