Withdrawn Dick Smith listing suggests Australian Chromecast release is just around the Corner

by John_A


Australian ChromecastThe Google Chromecast has slowly been making its world tour around the globe, most recently being released in Korea courtesy of the large mobile YouTube consumption there. One place that hasn’t gotten the Chromecast yet is Australia, despite recent rumours that Telstra was in negotiations to include additional content onto the media streaming device before the Australian Chromecast release. Well, the land Down Under might be getting one step closer to getting the Chromecast as retailer Dick Smith posted a listing for the device before abruptly pulling it down; not before some clever people were able to take a screenshot however.

As the image above shows, the device was listed for $49 AUD, which is roughly $10 more than what the device would be worth in the U.S., though this appears the norm for the Chromecast’s release away from the States. The listing also said it would become available on May 28th, and while it’s hard to tell whether this was a cruel joke or someone pulling the trigger early, there isn’t long to wait before we see whether this was a genuine listing or not.
