    The actual trailer from that link has been removed, but a guy from DICE confirmed it.

    Also, the BattleLog trailer airs today:

      Comments suggest that you can access the minimap from any device on your local network via battlelog once you are in game. Meaning gamers lacking a second monitor for their main computer could utilize a laptop or tablet if they possess one. Cool feature.

        One of my favorite features of Supreme Commander 2 was its multi-monitor support. This is a positive step.

          I remember asking if this was possible the first week BF3 came out. I hope you can chose to display the mini map on not just a tablet but also a second monitor.

            Very cool, particularly interested in the ability to change loadouts via tablet and set attack markers/waypoints, along with the other map related stuff.

              This gonna be way cool! I've already got an iPad. Anyone using the tablet for BF3 now?

                I have a spare iPad that would be perfect for the second screen stuff, but is it confirmed that feature will be available on PC? In that vid they kept referencing "console", not PC.

                  Yes.

                  They have explicitly said that you can run it on:
                  * a second monitor
                  * a second PC running on the same network
                  * a tablet/phone (presumably on the same network too)

                    Has waypoints been confirmed?

                      Unfortunately, from what I've seen, it's just attack/defend-markers - tag-a-flag, BF3-style.

                        That's what I've seen so far as well.

                            SupCom1: Forged Alliance Forever. Had this option built into it. It turned the second screen into its own fully functional map that could use strategic zoom at any level. Absolutely a blast to watch replays or play the game itself on the big screen of 4 on 4 going at it.

                            I could see a real further use out of this mode other than simple minimap.

                            While this may beyond the scope of the hardware. It would be interesting to see a commander be able to pick up a pad device ingame and walk away from the PC. Touchcreeen interface to analyze the carnage and place orders, markers, and drops. Just attach a combo headset microphone to the device and be free of the desktop for a lazy boy recliner. Again probably beyond scope since BF4 would probably have to be installed on the pad as well. But just an out there idea.

                              That is pretty interesting. very curious to see how that evolves.

                              BEST implementation of the a multiscreen set-up? Commander Mode on a side screen.. now were talkin'! Maybe?
