Sony has just announced the new IM10 Wireless Display that will let you easily display your smartphone's screen to your TV set from anywhere inside the house. Powered my Miracast technology, the device lets you stream high quality video from phones like Sony's newly unveiled Xperia Z1.
The Sony IM10 is a plain and visually unimpressive device that's meant to connect to your devices and then get out of the way. At 75 mm x 75 mm x 16.5 mm and weighing at 125 grams, the device is designed to be simple and small, having only two ports at the back, an HDMI port that connects to the TV and a micro USB port for power, while the front sports only an LED and a connect key.
The IM10 is able to stream 1080p utilizing Miracast and Wireless direct technology. NFC-enabled smartphones can connect to the IM10 Wireless Display by simply tapping the smartphone onto the device to initiate a WiFi connection. Smartphones without NFC can still pair with the IM10 manually. Devices such as laptops or tablets can also use the wireless display as long as they are Miracast-enabled.
Sony announced the IM10 togethewr with the Xperia Z1 at IFA last week but has not revealed pricing or availability details except that it its coming soon. It seems that only a black color option will be available for the device.
