LaCie's Little Big Disk - Thunderbolt Series

Coming soon to the market will be the LaCie's Little Big Disk Thunderbolt Series. Probably one of the first few storage devices which uses the collaboration of Apple and Intel's Thunderbolt technology.
Just to recap, Thunderbolt technology allows 10Gbps transmission rate in both direction via single channel. In daily real-life comparison, it means a full HD movie can be transferred completely in less than 30 seconds.

From Lacie's website, it is expected to be available in both SSD and normal HDD drives. 240GB and 500GB is expected for SSD models and 1TB (7200rpm) and 2TB (5400rpm) is available for HDD models. It also features a Kensington lock placeholder. 

When will it be available? Some news are already circulating that the device is out in the Apple Store. Unfortunately there are no where to be found at the moment in the Apple Online Store.
Expected price for the 1TB HDD model to be $399. The finishing of the storage device in aluminum would be a match made in heaven for Apple products.
