Amazon is now selling the Google Chromecast media dongle for just $30 and providing free shipping to go along with it. Previous deals have offered this HDMI dongle for the same price, but with heavy shipping prices. The Chromecast dongle was originally priced at $35 during launch, so this is a savings of $5 along with free shipping, so it’s possibly the best deal you can get right now.
With Google opening up Chromecast to third party developers, the possibilities are endless in terms of apps and new features. Only yesterday we saw Koushik Dutta a.k.a Koush demonstrate Android mirroring on a Chromecast.
So if you’re looking to get yourself a decent home media player with a ton of options to play around with, you can’t go wrong with the Chromecast. Right out of the box, users will be able to stream content over a Wi-Fi or local network to a television using Chromecast. Users can also mirror the Google Chrome browser from their computer onto Chromecast using Tab Casting which is currently in Beta.
