Docking stations are great; they allow notebooks to become entirely morefunctional at one's main work desk, and they allow them to becomeconnected with an array of already-place peripherals (printers, mice,monitors, etc.) The only problem that is few notebooks are designedwith docking stations that match perfectly, and those that are aregenerally just normal business notebooks with lackluster specificationsand boring designs. If you've been wishing that a docking station weremade for your notebook, the Easy Dock may be it.

Source R&D has just introduced the Warpia Easy Dock, whichessentially is a wireless docking station for any notebook. It'suniversal in nature and requires only a free USB 2.0 port on a notebookin order to work. It's totally plug-and-play, and it wirelessly sendsout video and accessory signals that hit a receiver that's attached toa small dock that resides on your desk. That dock can handle 2 USBaccessories as well as a DVI output, giving you enough to have anexternal keyboard, external mouse and monitor continually plugged infor use with your home-based notebook.

The monitor can use a resolution as high as 1400x1050, and it workswith Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP and Mac OS X Leopard/SnowLeopard. It's available starting now for $149.99, but honestly, we'relooking forward to a version that takes advantage of more bandwidth sowe can use our 1080p monitors without any lag or pixel problems.

Easy Dock brings your laptop content to your desktop computing environment for convenient use of speakers, mouse, keyboard & external monitor

SAN JOSE, California, Mar. 9 – Source R&D announced today the availability of the Warpia Easy Dock, which will allow users to wirelessly connect their notebook/netbook/Macbook to any traditional desktop setting.  With the Easy Dock’s straightforward plug-and-play interface, consumers can have both the convenience and portability of a laptop, as well as the comfort of a desktop computer.  Easier on the eyes, ears and hands, users will no longer have to squint at a miniature screen, deal with a below average sound quality, or fumble with a tiny keyboard.

Based on wireless technology from Wisair, a leading provider of single-chip based Wireless USB solutions, the Easy Dock consists of a USB dongle that connects to your laptop and a receiver that connects to your monitor, mouse, keyboard, and speakers.  Your laptop will instantly recognize the dongle and begin submitting a wireless signal to the receiver, transmitting the image with a resolution of up to1400×1050 to your monitor’s screen.

This seems like a very useful device, especially with the wireless connectivity. I don't like the video capabilities though, especially seeing that more and more notebooks come with either 1900 or 1600 resolution by default now.
