  • I understand the pain of folks who own a HDTV and Samsung tablet/phone and can’t really use the AllShare feature. Well, now they can, thanks to the Samsung AllShare Cast Dongle, that the Koreans promised ever since the Galaxy S III was announced. You just need to connect it to the older TV that doesn’t support DLNA and streaming will be done in an instant.

    You can watch a demo of the accessory hooked to a TV and Galaxy S III in the video below. The dongle does mirroring for your phone or tablet screen and the AllShare Cast box can use WiFi Display to stream the pictures and Full HD videos on the TV. The WiFi Display method is an alternative to the DLNA, that needs the TV and handset/tablet to share the same WiFi connection.

    The dongle is yours for 73 pounds, meaning that for about $116 you can own it, accessing this Amazon link. For one thing, you get rid of HDMI cables, you make your TV smarter and enjoy the full potential of your just bought Samsung mobile device. With such accessories available around, is there actually need for DLNA anymore? The only drawback here is that intensive games like GTA III are shown in a laggier way on the TV.

      Have you tested the Allshare Cast Dongle to see if it works with the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 only I thought it was only for the S3, which would be silly if that was the case!
