Microsoft comes up with smaller version HDMI Dongle – Update




Microsoft comes with the second generation of its Wireless Display Adapter. The new version is slightly smaller and cheaper than its predecessor and promises to bring the latency of transferring images down.

The new Wireless Display Adapter is compatible including phones, tablets and laptops with Windows 10, reports Microsoft. Compared to the previous generation is the block on the side of the USB port and larger on the side of the HDMI port smaller. Therefore users can also carry the device by the cubes to slide against each other. Furthermore, the text “Microsoft” has been replaced by a simple logo on the Chromecast competitor.

Microsoft claims a lower latency of the device, but does not specify numbers or detailed specifications. The wireless display adapter of the second generation works much like the first with Miracast, a way to wirelessly stream pictures. The adapter is in the US and Canada on March 1 on-sale for $ 49.95, ten dollars less than the price at release of the first generation. When the dongle will be available in the UK, is unknown.

Update, 20:51: Microsoft has announced that the Wireless Display Adapter early April will be released in Netherlands for 59.95 euros.
