Microsoft announces HD-10, a Miracast accessory for Lumia devices with NFC support

Earlier today, Microsoft unveiled the Lumia 730, 735 and the mid-range flagship Lumia 830. Well, it seems these are not the only devices which saw the light of the day at the big event, the company also revealed some accessories to go with the new devices, including the Microsoft Screen Sharing For Lumia Phones: HD-10.

The accessory gives Lumia owners the ability to view high quality content on a bigger display from their phone. And, it’s easy to set up as well. Microsoft Screen Sharing is connected to the larger screen with the help of an HDMI cable, and powered by a micro USB cable. Once connected, all you have to do is tap your NFC-enabled device on the plate and it will instantly get connected. The NFC disc is removable so you can pass it around to share content on a bigger display.

The accessory is compatible with all Lumia devices with screen projection capabilities and other Miracast products. Microsoft HD-10 will be available in black and white color options later this month with a $79 USD / 79€ price tag.

What do you think about this new NFC accessory?

    It’s good! Makes it very easy for us to project our Lumias to HD TVs. I just want to know if all Lumia is capable of screen projection?

    • warrior107

      NFC support is required for it work

      • ausidog

        Wrong. NFC support is helpful, buy not necessary. Miracast support is absolutely necessary. The Icon and 1520 are the only phones from the previous generation that support Miracast. All new Lumias have Miracast.

    Where is the miracast support for Xbox One?

  • Nano Kanpro

    Thought this was supposed to compete with Chromecast dongle. 5 times larger and more than double the price. Too bad. Maybe next time

  • BruceDickens

    this makes me want to buy… an android phone. Hope this isn’t their chromecast competitor.

    • youngshyne

      Android phone just for chrome cast . What are you smoking

      • BruceDickens

        What am I smoking? How about having access to apps that aren’t on windows phone, which is like half of them.

        • youngshyne

          yes, you are correct. Android has more apps than window phone. I think android is the perfect OS for you

        • Ray C

          And have you even used half or even a quarter of those apps that are not on Windows Phone? It’s not like Chromecast has been a run away hit for Google. And if you’re such a big Android fanboy, why are you ever here? This has nothing to do with Android or apps

  • Damn you Microsoft

    What a piece of shit for the price… Like damn, it’s litterally featureless….
