Toshiba dynadock U now ready

Toshiba on Thursday began shipping a new version of the dynadock U as its first wireless docking station for notebooks. The device uses an ultra wideband link to connect as many as six USB devices at once but also has enough bandwidth for Ethernet, wireless audio and video: it can put out up to a 1920x1200 image on a secondary DVI or VGA display and 7.1-channel audio through speakers attached to the dock. Sound also works in both directions and will let webcams send audio over the wireless link.

The system is intended only for Windows XP, Vista and 7 systems so far, but in exchange has a unique "undock" button that properly unmounts peripherals from the PC so users can safely put it to sleep or shut it down without having to do so one at a time in software or risk errors. Toshiba anticipates the dynadock U reaching stores within the next few days at a price of $300.
