Lenovo launches Chromecast like media streaming device Cast

Lenovo has announced the launch of its low-cost Google Chromecast-like media streaming device called Cast. Just like the Chromecast, the Lenovo Cast can be connected to the TV using the HDMI port, linked to you mobile phone or tablet and stream content directly on the TV. Also note that the Cast will not just stream media from a smartphone or tablet, it can also mirror any content one has on their phones. The Lenovo Cast will not only support Android and Chrome devices, but also Windows 8.1 and iOS devices through Miracast and DLNA. The Lenovo Cast will available for sale worldwide from August, and is priced at $49. Lenovo claims that the Cast can transfer content when the devoce is up to 20 meters away, and even send signals through walls. The Google Chromecast, which was first launched in July 2013, was finally launched in India in December last year. The device is priced at Rs 2,999 and is available on Google Play, Snapdeal and select Airtel stores across India. It's also worth noting that Airtel had been piloting a Chromecast clone called Inferno in Gurgaon, in October last year. This was powered by TV streaming startup Teewe and the telco was offering the device at a subsidized rate of Rs 500 for Airtel Broadband users in Gurgaon. However, the Inferno site has now been pulled, and the Android app, published by Teewe hasn’t been updated for quite a few months. Image credit: Lenovo
