The technoholics in India are often seen fretting about how cool technologies are always arriving late in India and how many of them are forced to buy their favorite products from overseas markets. But this trend seems to be breaking as Snapdeal has jumped in the 'Internet of Things' fray with their latest product: Teewe - a media streaming device for TVs with an HDMI port. The Snapdeal Teewe is essentially the 'younger brother' of Chromecast, a $35 video streaming stick by Google.

The concept of media streaming devices for televisions is a new concept in India. These devices have a pretty straightforward task: To browse and play the media files present on all of the devices connected to a Wi-Fi network. Also, Teewe can stream all the users' videos, pictures and audio files from a smartphone or a laptop/PC connected to a network on the TV. The Teewe initializes when plugged in the HDMI port of the TV and then automatically detects the devices connected to the Wi-Fi network.

The 'remote' of this device is the Teewe smartphone app. It lets the user browse and play media and control the sound and also lets you play and pause the videos. The Teewe app also allows users to queue up videos like a playlist. Also, special sections are kept on the app for Online TV shows and Online movies. To summarize, it will be like controlling all the media files on the connected devices via your smartphone.


The device runs on a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor clocked at 1.5GHz and has a DDR 3 RAM of 1GB. Banglore-based Mango Man Consumer Electronics has developed this product for Snapdeal. The Teewe dongle is currently available for pre-order on Snapdeal for a price of Rs. 1,999. Snapdeal is also giving away an HDMI extension cable and a micro-USB charger along with the dongle.
So, Yay or Nay on the Teewe? Share with us in the comments.

@Himanshu911 • 03 Sep, 2014 maybe you should check out the device at www.esycast.com.. i thing it is a stronger contender for being a substitute device for chomecast in india
