CES 2014 - Google's Chromecast is a lot of things, but one thing it doesn't do is play local media - Netgear has just unveiled its new NeoMediacast dongle, which features a micro SD card slot for local storage.

Netgear's NeoMediacast is Miracast-enabled, and is compatible with any device running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and above. The Netgear NeoMediacast also comes with a micro USB port, so that you can plug in additional storage and content into the device, streaming it through your TVs HDMI port. This means that no Internet access is needed, another shot fired at Google.

 

Although, Netgear hasn't built-in support for iOS into its NeoMediacast, which is a tick in the negative box when comparing it to Chromecast, which works across a broad range of operating systems, including iOS. We should expect the Netgear NeoMediacast sometime in the next 6 months or so.
