Wireless USB noted

I almost forgot to mention both Dell and Lenovo both are putting wireless USB into at least one notebook model each shipping this year. I had a sneak peak of the Lenovo news a few weeks back, but the fact Dell is jumping in too was news to me.

The USB Implementers Forum announced Monday the Lenovo ThinkPad T61/T61p 15.4-inch Widescreen and the Dell Inspiron 1720 have both been officially certified for wireless USB and are expected to ship before the end of the year. D-Link and IOgear said they will ship hubs and dongles, too.

This doesn't make a market by a long shot, but this marks the start of what could someday become something viable.
