The second generation of the Wireless Display Adapter boasts reduced latency, a smaller size, and a reduced price: $49.95 ($10 less than its predecessor, but still $10 more than Chromecast).

 

Pre-orders are available in the US and Canada through the Microsoft Store, Best Buy, and Amazon, with other markets to come soon. The device will launch March 1.
