Amongst a slew of Lumia announcements in India, Microsoft also sneaked in a useful companion to use with your Lumia Windows Phones. The company launched the Microsoft Screen Sharing HD-10 accessory, a Miracast receiver with NFC support, which allows users to share their phone's content with other people through any HDMI display.
Launched at the IFA 2014 in Berlin last month, the HD-10 offers a seamless way to showcase your phone's screen in full HD on a big screen wirelessly. The possibilities are endless - from watching movies, playing games, flicking through photos, listening to music, or sharing PowerPoint presentations at the office.
While Microsoft Screen Sharing is connected to your screen via the HDMI cable and powered by Micro USB, it actually connects wirelessly to your Lumia. All you need to do is to simply tap your Windows Phone device to the HD-10 thanks to a removable NFC disc, easily mirroring everything on your phone to your big screen. You can pass the NFC disc around to allow anyone to share their content.
The HD-10 looks almost like a hockey puck. It measures 80mm in diameter, 21mm thick, and weighs 115 grams. Check out the hands-on we did at the IFA 2014.
Any Lumia with screen projection capabilities, essentially the ones with the Lumia Denim update, and other Miracast products can use the HD-10. While the HD-10 was announced with a price tag of US$ 79, in India, it is launched for ₹5,999 and available in black and white colors. While no exact date was announced, the device is expected to be available for sale around Diwali, the big Indian festival later this month.
