Google's Chromecast is officially still a U.S. only product, but Amazon has now started to offer international shipping of the little $35 dongle for the first time. With shipping and import fees, the Chromecast still comes in less expensive than those often ridiculous eBay prices for anyone outside the U.S. Android Central's Alex Dobie:
For UK buyers, standard (8 to 14-day) shipping costs £5.79, while priority (two-day) shipping costs £21.28. In Australia it's A$11.02 and A$36.42 respectively. With standard shipping our UK order came to just over £34 — not at all bad for this type of product.
So far countries supported seems limited, but Australia, the U.K, Hong Kong and Germany all seem able at this time to import a Chromecast from Amazon.com. However, while the device itself might be easier to snag now, the Chromecast app for iOS is not.
You can set up your Chromecast without the app – see the guide below for the full rundown – but if you do want it on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, right now you can only get it from the U.S. App Store. That requires a U.S. iTunes account. If you have one, or you have access to one, you'll find the app at the link below. No doubt the app will become more widely available once Google officially launches the Chromecast outside of the U.S.
So, now that you can, anyone in any of those countries picking one up?
