More information please, your TV needs to also have a USB port (for power) and the phone would have to be an Android phone.

...or you could just by an HDMI cable to HDMI mini for about one third of that cost.

Apple TV...

Turns out that on Amazon Japan this model is more expensive than an imported Chromecast...

Technically, you can power it with any USB powered adapter, from your TV or a simple phone charger

the phone would have to be an Android phone

Quoting wikipedia here:

Miracast support is built into Android 4.2 or later [18] and starting with Android 4.4, devices can be certified to the Wi-Fi Alliance Display Specification as Miracast compatible.[19] Miracast is also built into Microsoft Windows 8.1[20] although developers can implement Miracast on top of the built-in Wi-Fi Direct support in Windows 7 and Windows 8.[21] Another way to support Miracast in Windows is with Intel's proprietary WiDi v3.5 or above. Apple supports its own AirPlay mirroring instead of Miracast on OS X.

That makes the current OS list Android and Windows. This could well spread to other devices, since I suspect AirPlay is not an option for any non-Apple company.

you could just by an HDMI cable to HDMI mini for about one third of that cost.

In some cases, say a video projector hung from the ceiling, you may be better off without cables. Moreover, a third seems sightly exagerated, last time I checked, decent slimport HDMI cables went around 2500~4000 yens.

Apple TV

Works only for Apple products, but I have to agree it's worked for a long time and very well at that.

There are a few apps available for Android (i.e. AllCast) that support AppleTV. Its not mirroring your screen, but streaming videos/apps off your phone. In most cases, this is all i would want it for.

Need to see if any of my friends has an AppleTV to test it on
