TeeWe 2, the successor to last year’s Chromecast-like dongle that streams media content from mobile devices as well as computers to a TV over the W-Fi network has been launched in India today. The new miniature streaming dongle comes with several hardware improvements while carrying the price tag of Rs 2,399.
For the additional 400 bucks (the original Teewe costs Rs 1,999), Teewe maker MangoMan Consumer Electronics, a Bangalore-based company announced that it is giving 60GB data access on Airtel network spread across 3 months (20GB per month). The company also announced that users will be able to enjoy premium movies, TV shows and songs on Eros Now.
As for the improvements, the TeeWe 2, as the company claims, is 30 percent smaller than its predecessor and flaunts an upgraded internal Wi-Fi antenna. As for the specification, the Teewe 2 has one full-sized HDMI port and a USB power port. It is powered by a 1.6GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 chipset coupled with a quad-core GPU and has 1GB of RAM.
Using Teewe 2, users can stream content from a mobile device, or computer to TV or a monitor with HDMI port. Using Teewe’s Chrome extension, one can stream select websites including YouTube, Vimeo, 9gag, Facebook directly from the browser. Teewe has an app on all popular platforms including Linux and Windows Phone which users can use to beam the content.
The device is now up for pre-orders on its official website. It will begin selling on May 25 on Amazon India. Interestingly, the company had chosen Snapdeal to sell the first generation of the dongle to users in India last year.
