Belkin to Ship Cable-Free USB Hub
The Belkin Cable-Free USB Hub does not require a cable to connect to the computer, and will be available for purchase in the U.S. in mid-December.

Utilising Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology with the Wisair chipset, the Belkin Cable-Free USB Hub (F5U301) allows consumers to place a computer anywhere in the room and still be able to print, play music, scan, download photos, and burn CDs through a device in the vicinity, wirelessly.

With Belkin Cable-Free USB Hub is possible to connect devices from up to 30 ft. away, with data transfer speeds of up to 480Mbps for USB 2.0 devices. The kit includes a 4-port Hub, a USB Dongle (that connects into a computer), and a dongle stand to reposition the device and give optimum wireless reception.

Launch in Asia, Europe, and Australia will follow but there is no defined date as yet, pending respective country�s regulatory approvals. The device has a suggested street price of US$199.99.
