Belkin intros cable-free USB hub
Belkin on Tuesday introduced its CableFree USB Hub, which provides wireless connectivity between a computer and any USB peripherals. A price was not announced; Belkin says the CableFree USB Hub will be released in early Spring.
The four-port hub uses Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology, and doesn’t require software or drivers in order to operate with the host computer. It works with any USB peripherals, including printers, hard drives, scanners and MP3 players. Devices are plugged into the hub, which doesn't require a wire to communicate with the computer.
Belkin’s Web site was not updated with information about the new device as Macworld posted this article.
In addition to this week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Belkin plans to show off the new device at next week’s Macworld Expo in San Francisco, Calif.
