  1. (Los Angeles, CA) - January 3, 2006 – Belkin announces its new CableFree USB Hub , the industry’s first USB Hub that does not require a cable to connect to the computer. This Hub allows people to place their laptop anywhere in the room while still maintaining wireless access to their USB devices, such as printers, scanners, hard drives, and MP3 players. This is the first UWB-enabled product to be introduced in the U.S. market. The CableFree USB Hub’s wireless functionality is enabled by Freescale Semiconductor’s ((NYSE:FSL, FSL.B) Ultra-Wideband technology.

    Well, the good news is that it is coming, and we're going to do a review of it. The bad news is that it was originally slated for an April release, and now it looks more like summer.
