A big No of course. The newly released $35 Google Chromecast wireless streaming TV dongle sold out immediately, surpassing the sales of even the latest Google Nexus 7 tablet.
Well, it is a promising programming device and not a complete replacement of the Apple TV and Roku TV, the two most popular ones for video streaming. Apple TV is priced tagged $100 and Roku TV starts from $50.
Google Chromecast works with only four apps as of now and this is the biggest drawback of the device. You will miss the HBO Go, Hulu Plus, Amazon and iTunes. As of now you can just enjoy YouTube, Netflix, Google Play and Google Music.
Well, at $35 what more you want. Isn’t it?
Do share your own thoughts about the newly released Google Chromecast and how far it will be able to attract interests of gadget and TV enthusiasts.
