Let’s face it: if you’re reading this site, you’re probably armed to the teeth with gadgetry. And with that arsenal of tech comes the need to plug it all in somewhere — inevitably leading to a massively cluttered work station. Well, that’s why Toshiba’s releasing two laptop accessories aimed at reducing the desktop chaos while further fueling your electronics habit. The dynadock U3.0 universal docking station offers multi-tasking users an array of six USB ports (two USB 2.0 and four USB 3.0) that can charge phones and portable media players without having to turn your computer on or have it actively connected to the dock. There’s also a Gigabit Ethernet connection for high speed data transfer and a built-in full HD digital video card that adds support for up to two extra monitors. The dock is slated to hit sometime later this month and will retail for $180. Less exciting, though no less useful, is the company’s USB 3.0 Mobile LED Monitor which boasts a widescreen 1366 x 768 HD resolution, anti-glare coating and weighs around 3.6 pounds. No pricing or concrete availability’s been announced for this external display, save for a possible April bow. You can check out the PR after the break for all extended details.
