Microsoft may release a Surface-branded competitor to the Chromecast

Microsoft Surface-branded Miracast dongle

A new report suggests that Microsoft may be planning to release a Surface-branded Miracast dongle, which can compete with the likes of Google's Chromecast. The news follows the leak of some accessory product images and suggests the dongle would plug into your HDMI port and be powered by the USB ports commonly found in TVs these days.

While the dongle will be Surface branded, it is expected to also be widely compatible with other devices, including the new generation of Windows Phone 8.1 handset.

Hopefully Microsoft prices the accessory sensibly in the $30 range to compete with the Chromecast, rather than its traditionally more expensive price range.
