ReadWrite- Soon you may be able to mirror what's on your Android smartphone or tablet to your television through Chromecast.
Chromecast seem to be great pretty cheap to for all the things they do.
I could already do this on my Motorola Photon with the mini HDMI cable. I wish more manufacturers would implement mini HDMI...
Isn't it a completely different thing to do it wirelessly, though?
the point with the chromecast though is that it will work with any android device wirelessly withough mini hdmi cables, making them pointless
Yes, it is. Seems to be a great device for streaming videos on Smart TV via smartphones.
I already stream my video via imedia
Sony already do this with their Bravia range as well as via HDMI
i just dont see a real need for this. if you have a TV and the only means of watching/streaming something is to do this with a phone then maybe you shouldnt really have a TV.
Bought a Chromecast thinking it would be great to stream pictures/videos, taken on my phone, directly to my television. Oops, Can't do it. My Chromecast has not been used since I bought it. Hopefully this functionality will be implemented soon.
