| Belkin has quietly started accepting preorders for its Thunderbolt Express Dock. Originally announced with a September 2012 launch date at last year's CES, the Express Dock has undergone numerous set backs and revisions. The final shipping version will allow customers to expand a single Thunderbolt port into eight different ports, including one FireWire 800, one Gigabit Ethernet, three USB 3.0, one 3.5mm audio-in, one 3.5mm audio out, and one Thunderbolt port. While pre-orders are being accepted online for $300, an official shipping date is still yet to be released.
