New Cable for BlackBerry® and Android™ Smart Phones, Tablets and Digital Cameras Ensures you Always Have the Right Connector

Built-on Mini USB and Micro USB connectors offer users a unique, single-cable solution to connect and charge many of their Portable Electronic Devices

Lockbourne, OH  - June 6th,  2011 - StarTech.com, a leading manufacturer of hard-to-find connectivity parts has announced the release of a unique cable that features both Mini USB and Micro USB connectors - a convenient connectivity solution for users of common Portable Electronic Devices such as BlackBerry® and Android™ Smart Phones and Tablets, as well as digital cameras and more.

“We had feedback that people were getting frustrated having to purchase multiple cables with different connectors for their various Portable Electronic Devices, so we developed this unique cable as a convenient, cost-saving way to solve that problem” said Keith Rodrigues, Senior Product Manager for StarTech.com. “This cable will not only save users the cost of duplicate purchases, but also eliminate the bulk and clutter of keeping more than one cable on hand for what are supposed to be convenient, ‘universal’ connections to increasingly common devices.”

The 3ft USB to Micro USB and Mini USB Combo Cable (SKU: USBHAUBMB3), offers the following features:

  • Durable 3ft cable length provides enough connection distance to conveniently link most devices, without being too cumbersome to carry around
  • Supports both data and power functions, enabling users to charge a PED battery or to synchronize data from the host computer USB 2.0 connection
  • Can be used with the same USB AC wall charger as would normally be used to charge both mini and micro USB devices, for added convenience and cost savings

The USBHAUBMB3 USB to Micro USB and Mini USB Combo Cable is available for purchase from leading technology resellers including CDW, Newegg.com, Amazon.com, PC Connection, and Insight and will also be distributed by Ingram Micro, Tech Data, D&H and SYNNEX. MSRP for this product is $10.99 in the United States and $11.99 in Canada.
