PLAiR can stream content from a PC, Android or iOS device to any HDTV

PLAiR has been announced back at the CES in Las Vegas and it’s now finally available for purchase. Those who haven’t heard about it should know it’s a small, fancy-lookin’ device that works like Apple’s AirPlay, allowing users to stream content from a PC, Mac, iOS or Android-based device to any HDTV with an open HDMI port. In other words, it’s made to make it as easy as possible to beam content from your computer/smartphone/tablet screen to your TV. And to that end, the company is also offering Chrome Plug-in, as well as dedicated apps for iOS and Android.

The official pitch goes like this (from the press release):

PLAiR frees up its users from the mirroring restrictions of AirPlay and other alternatives. When a user beams a video, PLAiR takes over the streaming and allows the user to browse the Web, logon to Facebook, or have a lean back experience by simply powering off their laptop or mobile device.

As for the price, PLAiR could be yours for $99; it is available in three colors: Raven (black), Aqua (blue) or Passion (red). Under the hood, PLAiR hides a 1GHz ARM Processor, 1 GB DDR3 RAM, 802.11n wireless, and a built in GPU/VPU for full 1080p streaming. You can get your unit from here.
