Sony releases HDMI Android dongle

Written by Nick Farrell

Bravia Smart Stick

Sony has finally announced its first Android HDMI dongle for TVs.

The Bravia Smart Stick provides users access to the Google Play app store, Chrome Internet browser and the company's own apps. With a built-in HDMI input, a settop box can also be connected to the dongle to search and view TV programs. Controlling the search is a touchpad controller with voice-recognition capability. The clicker also doubles as a universal remote, making it possible to conveniently operate the connected TV and settop box. It is not cheap.

The Bravia Smart Stick will retail for US$149, which is lot pricier than the US$35 Google Chromecast. According to Sony’s press release, the Bravia Smart Stick is available now in the US.
