These devices are listed as Thunderbolt 1, which makes me think they will postpone shipping because they will later decide they want thunderbolt 2, in which case we will wait for about 2 years. This has been the case for their Thunderbolt docking station which has yet to ship in 2 years since they announced it. :-(
