Lenovo declares war on Chromecast with Lenovo Cast

Lenovo has declared war against Google by announcing its own media streaming gadget that is compatible with Android, iOS as well as Windows devices. Costing merely $49, the fancy looking Lenovo Cast connects to TV and other large screens via HDMI port, and streams media to bigger screens.

Unlike the Chromecast that is reliant on Wi-Fi to establish a connection between a mobile device and a big screen, the Lenovo Cast uses Miracast and DLNA – something that almost every Android device comes preloaded with. Once the media streaming device is attached to a TV, it is capable of mirroring your phone or tablet’s screen to TV.

The Lenovo Cast supports 5GHz Wi-Fi networks, which is definitely better than the Chromecast. And if you count its compact look and compatibility to devices across entire mobile ecosystems, the Lenovo Cast is going to be a great buy this August.
