USB 3.0 has already started working its way onto PCs, and it won't be long before it's become the new standard. As well it should: Buffalo's BSH4A03U3 hub is backwards compatible with USB 1.1 and 2.0, but offers data transfer speeds of up to 5Gbps.
The four-port USB 3.0 hub will be available in Japan later next month, AC adaptor included, for $US88. There's no word yet on when it might be available elsewhere, but the clock's ticking. [Buffalo via CrunchGear]
