Kensing sd200v laptop dock

Continuing a spate of announcements, Kensington has launched the sd200v, its latest laptop dock. Meant to expand the usefulness of a laptop when sitting at a desk, it connects via a single USB port, but allows users to attach speakers and up to five USB devices, such as mice and keyboards. The focus however is on a VGA port, which allows an external display; a button on the dock toggles the display between mirroring the existing laptop screen, or treating it as a second screen for an expanded desktop. Resolutions up to 1280x1024 or 1440x900 are supported.

The sd200v is only compatible with Windows XP and Vista PCs, and is not yet out; it should ship later in September, although it is already available for pre-order through Amazon or the Kensington website. Price is being set at $140.
