On Friday last week, we had the scoop on Australian stocks of Chromecast arriving in Dick Smith stores nation-wide, after a few tips received from Ausdroid fans. The rumour has been that Google will be selling Chromecasts in Australia from May 28, shown off in an accidentally published product page on the Dick Smith Electronics online shop.
While Dick Smith took the ordering page offline pretty quickly (and cancelled pre-orders that had been placed), the rumour refused to die, and we’ve since seen photos of stock arriving in Dick Smith Stores. Well, it isn’t just DSE that will be selling the Chromecast, according to tips received at Ausdroid yesterday afternoon.
James Bryant commented on our Google+ feed last night and told us that his sources within JB HiFi had confirmed stock availability:
It isn’t just James; an avid Ausdroid reader told us this morning that his local store confirmed to him that they have ‘heaps’ of Chromecasts in stock and ready for sale tomorrow for $49 a piece. With these two tips, we’ve made our own inquiries with JB HiFi and it seems that they are quite happy to confirm that the sale is coming, tomorrow, and for $49 as quoted.
