Microsoft Surface-branded Miracast dongle leaks

surface_miracast reports that Microsoft is set to release a Surface-braded Miracast dongle for their tablet.

The news follows the leak of some accessory product images and suggests the dongle would plug into your HDMI port and be powered by the USB ports commonly found in TVs these days.

While the dongle will be Surface branded, and is expected to work well with the device, it should also be widely compatible with other devices, including the new generation of Windows Phone 8.1 handset.

Hopefully Microsoft prices the accessory sensibly in the $30 range to compete with the Chromecast, rather than its traditionally more expensive price range.
