Belkin unveils CableFree USB Hub, world’s first wireless USB hub

It’s a wireless world out there and Belkin pushes the envelope further with the announcement of the first wireless USB hub, the Belkin CableFree USB Hub. One can truly be mobile with the CableFree USB Hub as you no longer need any cable to connect to your PC and to use the stationary USB devices connected to it. Yes, sit with your laptop anywhere you like in your room while still being able to print on your printer, get pictures from your scanner or play your MP3 player.

The CableFree USB Hub, which will be featured at the upcoming 2006 International CES (Jan 5-8, 2006), is powered by Freescale Semiconductor’s Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology. UWB enables the high rate transfer of audio, video and information streams wirelessly.

Belkin plans to bring to market a four-port wireless hub starting Spring of 2006. It will be compatible with over 700 million USB devices currently estimated to be in the market. And that number is only predicted to grow. According to data gathered by market research firm In-Stat, USB devices are expected to jump to 2.1 billion in 2009.

“We have always focused on ease of use when developing our products… With the proliferation of USB devices and the increasing demand for wireless functionality, it’s important that we not only continue to bring innovative wireless products to the marketplace, but also to bolster them with easy installation. With CableFree USB, you can now get the ease of USB without wires”, says to Belkin Sr. VP of Sales and Marketing Mark Reynoso.
