Belkin Cable-Free USB Hub Wins Popular Science Award

Popular Science magazine has awarded Belkin's Cable-Free USB Hub one of its 100 "Best of What's New" awards, along with other cool gear like Logitech's MX Revolution, the Optimus Mini Three keyboard, among others.

The Cable-Free USB Hub was due out in the spring but has been delayed several times due to a change in their chipset manufacturer (their original supplier got out of the cable-free biz altogether). The ETA is now December 2006 and the price, originally stated to be $129, is now up to $199. Let's just hope they actually get this thing out the door before the sparkly ball drops in Times Square and the price doesn't keep edging up because I really want one of these and as much as I love Belkin's products and continued innovation, I am getting a little tired of their "announce early, ship late, price high" track record.
