Gerry Purdy, Ph.D., principal analyst, Mobile Trax. "Belkin has developed an interesting set of docking stands that really optimize the functionality of Ultrabooks, and particularly Windows 8 Tablets, in the business environment. This is a great step forward for mobile computing at the enterprise level."
The new docking stands are designed to provide versatility to accommodate mixed platforms and multiple users, including visiting professionals, contractors and ‘hot desk’ environments. Because it allows easy access to multiple peripherals, users can configure their workstations based on their preferences.
Key features of the USB 3.0 Dual Video Docking Stands include:
- Extra ports to deliver multiplied connectivity to keyboard, mouse, printer, network and more
- Improved productivity with the ability to connect to one or two external high resolution displays
- Optimized workspace with built-in Ethernet, display and USB ports as well as integrated cable management to keep clutter and desktop accessories organized
The Windows 8 docking stand is compatible with all Windows 8 tablets based on Atom and Intel core-i based mobile processors. The Ultrabook stand supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. Neither stand is compatible with Windows 8 RT.
“Laptop and tablet users often do without the advantages of external monitors, full-size keyboards and other desktop peripherals because of the hassle involved in connecting, disconnecting and reconnecting every device, every time they leave their desk or return to it,” said, Timothy North, global product manager of Belkin Business, a division of Belkin International. “These docking stands offer the best of two worlds—the freedom and convenience of mobility with the comfort and functionality of a fully equipped office, finally enabling mobile computing with enterprise-level productivity.”
