How much would it cost to manufacture an 802.11ac chip, video decode and hdmi output logic with connector and antennae? That sounds like a $50 product at a minimum and likely double that given that the video decode logic could well be custom and 11ac chipsets are still premium product. Then there would be the cost of the phone software.

Is the 802.11ac protocol more efficient from a battery perspective or is the added umph there mostly of a performance/throughput perspective? It is likely that this application of wifi connection is only now coming within the purview of available chipset technologies.

Is it practical to consider powering the dongle with a Snapdragon chipset? That would fall into line with the Lenovo TV thrust.
