Redwood Shores, Calif. — Kensington’s computer products group will ship what it is calling the industry’s first USB-IF-certified wireless universal docking station.

The wireless USB docking station is a universal hub that works with all wireless USB-enabled notebook PCs. It has five USB ports, a DVI-I input and a speaker port.

After the initial pairing process, the notebook automatically connects to the docking station as soon as it comes into range, eliminating the need to plug and un-plug peripherals.

DualView technology allows access to a second monitor in mirror- or extended-view mode with one button push.

"We're especially proud to be the first to introduce a universal wireless docking station because nothing could be easier or more intuitive than having your accessories spring to life as you approach them with your notebook. We know that wireless USB notebook users are extremely busy mobile professionals who appreciate every efficiency they can gain, so they can stay productive at all times,” said Frederic Frappereau, global product manager, Kensington.

The wireless USB docking station (SKU K33920US) will be available at and by the end of the month at a suggested retail of $229.
