Belkin (http://www.belkin.com) has unveiled new details about its upcoming Thunderbolt Express Dock. It will be on display at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
The Belkin Thunderbolt Express Dock enables Macbook and Ultrabook users to instantly access multiple desktop peripherals with one cable. The dock allows users to simultaneously connect to multiple USB devices, watch movies in Full HD 1080p, transfer volumes of data in seconds, and view online content at gigabit Ethernet speeds. The dock provides an easy transition from a desktop workstation to unrestricted mobile productivity, according to Martin Avilla, general manager of Belkin’s Core Business Unit.
The US$299 Belkin Thunderbolt Express Dock — due this summer — includes three USB 2.0 ports, one Firewire 800 port, one HDMI port, one 3.5mm Audio port, one gigabit Ethernet port and two Thunderbolt ports (one upstream and one downstream) for daisy-chaining to another Thunderbolt compatible device. It utilizes Thunderbolt Technology for data transfer rates of up to 10Gbps bi-directionally.
