Belkin remakes, readies Wireless USB hub

Belkin Wireless USB Hub

In addition to its N1 Vision router, Belkin has also restyled its upcoming Wireless USB Hub in advance of its release. The change makes the device sleeker and more compact than before but will still provide its characteristic high speed, the peripheral designer says. Ultra-wideband wireless gives the hub the ability to wirelessly connect as many as four traditional USB devices to a PC while maintaining the same 480Mbps peak throughput of the wired format, even with a 30-foot gap.

Bundled with the main hub are an adapter to convert a USB device into its Wireless USB equivalent as well as a dock to use the adapter with more stationary devices. Belkin expects the reworked hub to launch in August for $200, when it will initially require a system running Windows XP or Vista.
