Belkin wireless USB hub

Belkin is promoting what it calls the industry's first USB hub to not require a direct connection to a computer. The Cable-Free USB Hub instead uses Wisair's Ultra-Wideband chipset to connect wirelessly, permitting the unit to be placed anywhere within a 30-foot range. The USB receiver dongle plugs into desktops and laptops; an optional stand may provide better reception. The hub itself has four USB 2.0 ports, which run at speeds of up to 480Mbps. The Cable-Free launches in the United States in mid-December for the price of $200, while Asian, European and Australian releases will follow after an indefinite time period.
