Compton, Calif. — Belkin has introduced two products for the portable digital entertainment market, plus a third accessory device for the Mac mini computer.
The USB Anywhere, suggested retail price $39.95, is a data-transfer device that lets a consumer download and store information from one digital camera or other flash- or hard-drive product to another without a PC. The end user plugs the source and target devices into its USB ports and presses a button to initiate the download. It will ship in mid-October.
The Flip for Mac mini allows users to share a single monitor, keyboard and speakers between a mini and another USB-equipped desktop PC or notebook computer. It will ship early this fall with a $99.99 suggested retail price.
Shipping in August with a $49.99 suggested retail price is the TuneCommand for iPod. TuneCommand is a wireless remote with a 150-foot range that gives the user the ability to control eight basic commands while the iPod is attached to a home or car entertainment system.
