Intel has confirmed that developer kits for its recently launched Thunderbolt transfer protocol will be made publicly available this quarter.

The kits could help promote the "quick availability" of a wider ranger of devices powered by the interconnect technology.

According to Agam Shah of IDG News, Intel is already working with a number of partners to develop products which support the protocol.

For example, companies such as LaCie and Western Digital recently showcased Thunderbolt portable storage devices, along with AJA, BlackMagic, Matrox and Sonnet.

Meanwhile, Hewlett-Packard, which currently offers USB 3.0 ports in its high-end laptops, announced it would be evaluating Thunderbolt with an eye on future implementation of the protocol.
