Earlier this week, Amazon started shipping Google's Chromecast internationally. If for some reason you weren't comfortable with the idea of purchasing from Amazon.com and are located in the United Kingdom, you might like to know that the device has officially gone on sale on Amazon UK. Unfortunately, as with a lot of electronics, the pricing isn't exactly on par with what customers in the United States are paying.
TechRadar reports that Chromecast is now for sale on Amazon UK for a whopping £60. In case you've forgotten (or blocked it out because the pain of the injustice was too much to bear), allow us to remind you how much folks in the U.S. are paying: $35. That equates to just over £20 by today's exchange rates. In other words, those in the UK are kind of getting shafted.
Oh, and just in case you were reconsidering ordering from Amazon.com to get the device at a lower price (but sans free shipping), well, we hate to be the bearer of bad news, but that's no longer an option. It's Amazon UK or bust.
Chromecast is a media streaming adapter that Google announced back in July. The 2-inch dongle connects to your TV via the HDMI port and streams audio/video content over WiFi, allowing the user to stream content to their TV from either the Chrome browser or from their mobile phone or tablet. The device sold out at Amazon and Best Buy soon after it launched this past summer.
