Belkin sets new date for shipping Certified Wireless USB hub with ultrawideband (UWB): This item is different than the "cable-free" USB hub that Belkin is currently selling, which requires Windows drivers and isn't certified by the USB Implementors Forum. Rather, this new $200, 4-port hub with matching dongle emulates wired USB in a way that works with any host computer. The 4-port hub appears to the computer as directly connected.
This is the first stage in UWB evolution: dongles and paired devices that only work together. The next stage involves putting a UWB radio with multiple protocol profiles into a computer and operating system, such as Lenovo is offering with a new laptop. This will allow FireWire, USB, Bluetooth, and TCP/IP over UWB with a single radio.
Belkin says the device will ship in August.
