CES 2012: Belkin’s Thunderbolt Express Dock Coming in SeptemberBy: Shaylin Clark - January 9, 2012
Belkin, a company that specializes in connectivity accessories, unveiled the new Thunderbolt Express dock at CES today. The dock is designed to allow users to take fuller advantage of the new Thunderbolt technology found on an increasing number of computers, most notably those made by Apple.
The dock sports a remarkable array of connector ports: 3 USB 2.0, HDMI, ethernet, firewire, and a 3.5 mm audio port. It also has two Thunderbolt ports – one upstream, one down. It allows simultaneous use of multiple devices, meaning that users can plug one Thunderbolt cable into their computers, and gain instant access to anything plugged into the dock.
The Thunderbolt Express Dock retails for $299 and will be available in September.[Source: Belkin Press Release]
