"Belkin has announced that its N750DB router would be available in the next couple of weeks. The Belkin N750DB is the brand’s top of the line router and has features such as multiple antennas, multiple wireless bands, USD ports, wireless printing, network attached storage functionality.. and more."
If there ever was a product line that needed designed obsolescence, it would be the router. While they are pretty common-place now, very few things tend to go wrong with them. My current router is going on 8 years old and it still performs quite admirably. With the networking space changing very little over the years, I would expect most people's routers to be of a similar age.
So how do you convince people to upgrade to the latest and greatest? Make your router offer everything under the sun. NAS capabilities, wireless printing, etc. The only thing Belkin is missing with their N750DB is that funky LCD display they tried for a while. I guess there is such a thing as having too many features.
