In July, Google, the giant search engine company introduced a little dongle called Chromecast. The handset cost only $35, but it offered something truly special, something interesting and useful in the same time. It was sold in a matter of hours especially since it was offering 3 months of Netflix downloads for free, even for existing customers. Now, Verizon, another retailer, is selling Chromecast $35 TV dongle. Just like Motorola, Amazon and Google Plat, who already started selling the device, Verizon has decided to enlist the Chromecast accessory on their online address.

As I mentioned earlier, it appears that the Chromecast – Verizon deal is only online for now, and in the same time, it includes a free shipping offer, which can turn out to be more than a nice gift idea. Therefore, Verizon decided to become a part of the big suppliers who are selling Google’s HDMI dongle for only $34.55, the same price users will find on Google Play, Best Buy store or even on the Motorola site. This is the standard price.
