    Kanex, a leader of innovative Apple and iOS connectivity solutions for homes and businesses worldwide, today announced two new USB 3 solutions including the 4-Port USB 3 Hub and the USB 3 Gigabit Adapter. These new USB 3 solutions provide users with additional USB 3 ports or a Gigabit port for their Mac or PC.

    NPD In-Stat research forecasts SuperSpeed USB-enabled device shipments will surpass one billion in 2014, up from 70 million last year. "Our customers are asking us for solutions to connect the growing number of USB 3 devices," said Kelvin Yan, president of Kanex. "Our new USB hub and adapter enables our customers to extend their capabilities at home, in the office or on the road. We want to help our customers solve their technology challenges by enabling more ports or giving them ports that their computers may not have."

The USB 3 Gigabit adapter is also backwards compatible with USB 2 and USB 1.1 and supports Wake-on-LAN.

    USB 3.0 hubs are still too expensive.
