Amazon lists Chromecast for sale, is cheaper than through Google Play

Google's Chrome Cast goes on sale on Amazon.com, turns out to be cheaper and ship faster than Google

| HT & Movies News | Posted: Jul 24, 2013 10:29 pm

Earlier I reported on Google's new HDMI media streaming dongle dubbed Chromecast. I was so enthralled by it that I immediately went to the Google Play Store and placed my order. Fast forward a few hours and the Chromecast has now popped up on Amazon and if you are an Amazon Prime Member, the dongle is actually cheaper than if you were to purchase it from Google.

My order for the Chromecast placed through the Google Play store ran me $54 and some change including 2-day shipping. Being an Amazon Prime subscriber, I could have waited a few hours and ordered the same device with the same shipping for $35 total, and for an extra $11 I could have it shipped overnight. Unfortunately, Amazon has updated the page and says that the devices will not ship for an additional 1-2 days so you could still have the device in by Monday if you play your cards right.
