I understand that the Panda has a small form factor and runs on 5V making it hard to add features that require big hardware that consume a lot of power. Having said that, am wondering if its possible to add support for wireless display and a sata port.
lattepanda can be used as a media server where a user can connect sata drives and then connect to his/her TV wirelessly.

SATA can only be added with USB to SATA adapters, or a usb enclosure. I got about 450MB/s using an SATA SSD in a usb 3.0 enclosure. BUT, and here's the catch.. there's latencies added to this. the IOPs are kinda low. so for an SSD that should get about 100k'ish. it was getting 1-8k iops.
So if you need sustained speeds it's fine, but for small files, not so much. So for movies and stuff this is fine. But for something like.. a game with lots of little files, not so much. Skyrim with a low-res texture pack for example.

As for a wireless display... the thing is.. the panda is soo small, it would likely be smaller than a wireless HDMI setup. So you can get a nice little enclosure for the panda, and just a short hdmi cable and just plug it into the TV, where the hdmi wireless receiver would be.

And USB 3.0 to SATA adapters/enclosures are cheaper than ever.
