Earlier today, Microsoft unveiled the Lumia 730, 735 and the mid-range flagship Lumia 830. Well, it seems these are not the only devices which saw the light of the day at the big event, the company also revealed some accessories to go with the new devices, including the Microsoft Screen Sharing For Lumia Phones: HD-10.

The accessory gives Lumia owners the ability to view high quality content on a bigger display from their phone. And, it’s easy to set up as well. Microsoft Screen Sharing is connected to the larger screen with the help of an HDMI cable, and powered by a micro USB cable. Once connected, all you have to do is tap your NFC-enabled device on the plate and it will instantly get connected. The NFC disc is removable so you can pass it around to share content on a bigger display.

The accessory is compatible with all Lumia devices with screen projection capabilities and other Miracast products. Microsoft HD-10 will be available in black and white color options later this month with a $79 USD / 79€ price tag.
