Google seems to be making nice on their promise to get Chromecast spread around the globe soon, as the first details of a launch outside America have been made public. According to a leaked Google product document, one of Google’s biggest products of the year should be heading to the UK starting this Wednesday, March 19th.
The document didn’t specifically mention Chromecast, though the HDMI dongle’s name has been in the news in recent weeks regarding worldwide availability.
Android Chief Sundar Pichai himself mentioned they were looking to finalize plans for a more global rollout back at SXSW, and recent leaks also mentioned the Chromecast was being prepped for a UK launch. Also revealed at SXSW was that Chromecast sales have been in the “millions” range, so it definitely could be classified as one of Google’s biggest product launches of the past year.
The device will apparently run you £30 whenever it does drop, though that’s only a rumored price and anything could change between now and then. We’ll be on the lookout for an official announcement from Google later this week if this is, in fact, true. Any of you UK folks planning to grab one of these?
