ADVERTISEMENTS

Dlink would introduce UWB Wireless USB ktis (DUB-9240) which would allow you connect all your USB devices to your computer wirelessly. Dlink takes advantage of the ultra wide band wireless technology to make this possible.

What is ultra wide band (UWB) wireless USB (WUSB) technology?

Wireless USB is based on the WiMedia Alliance’s Ultra-WideBand (UWB) common radio platform, which is capable of sending 480 Mbit/s at distances up to 3 meters and 110 Mbit/s at up to 10 meters. It was designed to operate in the 3.1 to 10.6 GHz.

Dlink DUB-9240 wireless USB kit is expected to be available by Q4 of 2007 and would retail at USD $219.99 (approx. INR 8,800).

My View:

This would really make my table lot more clutter free as I can move many of my USB based device away from my computer. Once I get this device, I would move my printer, external hard disk drive to another table that is around 2 meters away. This is definitely a good buy if you have lot of USB devices and less space to accommodate all these in your current setup. The price that it may retail for, looks a bit on higher side as of now but once people start adopting the price may come down. What do you think? Would you buy this when it comes to market?
