HTC Media Link Allows Seamless Wireless Mirroring To Your Big Screen (Video)

For those of you who have been highly coveting Apple’s Airplay, covet no more.  HTC intro’d their new counter technology, HTC Media Link.  Media link allows you, via a small black box, to seamlessly mirror content from your HTC smartphone wire free.  The box allows you to stream photos, videos, music and more.  To activate the technology all you have to do is perform a three finger swipe up on your smart phone and likewise to disconnect the service.  In addition, while certain content is going on the big screen, the service allows you to still navigate and perform other functions on the device without interrupting what’s on the big screen. Want to stream Netflix, Hulu or HBO Go?  Well, you’re all set my friend.  So, what’s the difference from this technology and what HTC offered previously for mirroring?  The company has stated with streaming on previous devices they used “DLNA” technology while the new application uses “proprietary wireless connectivity”.  Stay tuned while we muster up price and availability for the service and don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments below.  Check out the video courtesy of Cnet below.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.
