IOGEAR Simplifies Road Warriors’ Lives with New 3-Port USB 2.0 Mobile Hub with Built-in Mini-USB Cable [10-13-2008]

Compact solution offers integrated mini-USB cable for mobile devices and unique top-loading USB port design

Irvine, CA – October 13, 2008 – Mobile professionals no longer have to worry about obstructed USB ports or toting numerous USB cables with IOGEAR’s new 3-Port USB 2.0 Mobile Hub with Built-in Mini-USB Cable (GUH276). The product comes with an integrated mini-USB cord and three evenly-spaced, upward-facing USB ports that prevent blockage to other outlets when a user connects a large dongle or flash drive to another port.
For students on-the-go on campus or traveling professionals, the product has a built-in mini-USB cable to charge and transfer content from their cell phones, MP3 players and other USB devices without needing an extra cord. This eliminates the need for users to take several cables wherever they go. The cord easily tucks away in a ridge along the side of the device for convenience.
Road warriors who don’t have enough USB ports on their laptops can benefit from the 3-Port USB 2.0 Mobile Hub with Built-in Mini-USB Cable’s convenient design that aligns three high-speed USB 2.0 ports along the top of the product with ample space between to ensure clear entry to every port. It integrates a regular USB cord that also easily clips along the edge of the device.
“In an increasingly mobile age where laptops are more prevalent, consumers need comprehensive solutions to increase efficiency,” said
Miranda Su, executive vice president of IOGEAR. “Our 3-Port USB 2.0 Mobile Hub with Built-in Mini-USB Cable’s design keeps this in mind, offering three amply-spaced USB ports in addition to a mini-USB cord that individuals can easily use to plug in their favorite devices to transfer data or repower."
The 3-Port USB 2.0
Mobile Hub with Built-in Mini-USB Cable ($12.95 MSRP) comes with IOGEAR’s three-year warranty. It is available immediately from all major catalog and online resellers, as well as select retail outlets.
