Belkin rolls out clippable, dockable USB hubs

Belkin USB Hubs

Belkin this morning shook up its approach to its USB hub range with three models that put extra ports in unique locations. The Hub-To-Go (pictured) is a rare convertible device that changes its role on the fly: while it includes a stable base with a tray for an MP3 player or other small devices, the 4-port hub detaches entirely to stow away for portable use. Its swiveling connector also lets it fit into notebooks and other systems without blocking nearby ports, Belkin says. The Hub-To-Go will sell in late August for $50 along with the Swivel Hub, which eliminates the base to lower the cost to $30.

A third hub, the Clip-On, is stationary and attaches to a desk or cable bundle to provide four USB ports without consuming valuable space. Two of these jacks are top-mounted to provide easier access for hot-swapped devices, Belkin says. The Clip-On joins the other hubs for the August release and sells for $30.
