Belkin's award-winning wireless USB hub is finally expected to be available this month, after several delays. According to Belkin's press release earlier today, the Cable-Free USB Hub will be available for purchase mid-December, for $199 USD. We first told you about the Belkin Cable-Free USB hub back in January when they were demoing in at Macworld. It's a 4-port USB hub that uses Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology, based on the Wisair chipset, and needs no drivers to deliver high rate, high quality transfers - up to 480Mbps for USB 2.0 devices - making it perfect for wireless streaming HD video and audio, as well as communicating with printers, scanners, cameras and other USB devices up to 30 feet away without being tethered to them. The only thing you're tethered to is a small USB dongle.
The hub will launch in the US first, with launches in Asia, Europe, and Australia to follow "at an indefinite date, pending respective country's regulatory approvals."
Yup, I still want one, despite the price jumping from $130 to $190. Bring it on, Belkin... Bring. It. On.
