D-Link Announces UWB Wireless USB Kit (DUB-9240)

D-Link UWB DUB-9240 Gearlog has an interesting announcement/introduction from D-Link, their first Wireless USB hub. They are reporting that it’s set to retail for about $120. It’s not shipping yet though; all we know is that D-Link is shooting for sometime in the forth quarter of this year. This is one of the first wireless USB hubs to be rolling out, and at a very reasonable price.

This is fairly big news for those ultraportable owners who want to skip port replicators and who don’t want a bunch of USB devices plugged into their laptops – you plug the USB dongle (but it’s wireless!) into your laptop, and your printers, scanners, digital camera card readers, etc., into a hub, and without plugging any of those into your laptop, you have access to all of them.

It’s the D-Link DUB-9240 and you can find more details at the D-Link Dub-9240 website.
