From what I read it should, it is the Android area i think it has more compatibility issues with. Also you have to have WiDi on your device unless it is android. From what I gathered your android device has to have screen share also...??

Really a confusing device. Also it wont work on Apple it says - so that gets an extra star in my book :mrgreen:

It's pretty much dependant on whether your wireless NIC supports WiDi. Run the Intel tool and it'll tell you if it's compatible with WiDi.

Android, if it's running 4.x it shouldn't have issues, of course with the wide number of Android devices out there, it's hard to guarantee it :)
