Belkin has added some upgrades to its soon-to-be-shipped Thunderbolt Express Dock, and a new Thunderbolt cable for Mac and PC users.

The Thunderbolt Express Dock is a first-of-its-kind docking solution for both PC and Mac users that enables instant access to up to nine desktop peripherals with one cable, and provides an easy transition from a desktop workstation to a mobile device. Upgrades to the latest version of the dock include the addition of three USB 3.0 ports, instead of USB 2.0 ports, as well as an eSata port.

Thunderbolt hasn’t really caught fire yet in the market place, if you’ll pardon the pun, but it holds great promise as file sizes get larger, especially media files. Apple includes Thunderbolt ports on the MacBook Air, The MacBook Pro, the iMac and the Mac mini.
The Express Dock will retail for US $399.00 and the Thunderbolt cable will list at $44.99. There are already Thunderbolt storage products from Pegasus, LaCie and Sonnet. The newest Apple displays can also connect via Thunderbolt.
