NU and Brando release netbook docking stations

NU Netbook DockTwo companies, NU and Brando, have today both announced universal netbook docks. NU’s netbook docking station is not too dissimilar to the one we saw last week from Century. It comes built-in with a Super-Multi DVD drive, a 2.5-inch HDD enclosure, 4cm cooling fan and two USB ports. NU says the dock will be compatible with both 9-inch and 10-inch netbooks. The optical drive can burn both CDs and DVDs whilst the fan can be switched on and off. There is no mention of price or availability right now.

Brando’s certainly looks more brash, coming in a bright pink colour. Its USB Mini Netbook Cooling Pad comes with a 2.5-inch HDD dock, three-port hub and a cooling fan. The dock looks pretty thick and bulky and certainly not as sleek as NU’s solution. Check out some pictures of both docks after the jump.

    How sure are you that this supports Windows 7 as stated on your website?
    All other places I’ve seen it for sale don’t mention 7, neither does the manufacturer’s own website.
