It was a big week for ultra-wideband; on Monday, the first products were certified for high-speed Wireless USB.
Yesterday, I told you about the Toshiba laptop that uses ultra-wideband to connect to its docking station. But soon, the market will also offer other laptops and devices equipped with ultra-wideband USB, according to a report from CRM Daily.
Dell, D-Link, Lenovo and Iogear officially passed the Wireless USB 1.0 certification Relevant Products/Services program, offered by the USB Implementers Forum. The certification guarantees that their devices will work with similar devices. They can also use a certification logo on their wares.
Ultra-wideband wireless allows you to connect to printers, keyboards, docking stations, cameras and other devices. It's faster than Bluetooth, but requires less energy, according to CRM Daily.
