Retails stores begin receiving Chromecasts ahead of UK release

Even though you can already buy a Chromecast in the UK via Zavvi’s online store, the mainstream stores are yet to have them in stock despite a provisional release date of 1st March 2014 originally set.

A recent tweet from a Currys/PC World employee shows that the retail stores are receiving stock ahead of an impending UK release, although pricing for this particular retail store is yet to be set.

With Zavvi pricing at £35 it can be expected that the pricepoint may be around that, despite Zavvi stating their retail price is £59.99. Sundar Pichai also confirmed international releases for Chromecast in the next few weeks, so it seems it’s only a matter of time before we see the Chromecasts hitting shelves in retail stores.
