Other then Apple's offering, what other display are on the market that support thunderbolt directly?
I'm confused by the question. Are you asking what other monitors use mini displayport? Dell Ultrasharps use displayport.
Asus have just released one too...I think I saw it on Engadets site a couple of days back....Assuming the OP means monitors and not Minin-Display port adaptors?
I'm not aware of a way to use the Thunderbolt displays other than with one of the recent Apple devices (except Mac Pros).
I mean displays that can connect directly to my new MacBook air
In that case there are adapters to convert thunderbolt video signal to DVI, VGA, HDMI, etc.
Pretty sure some of the Dell "ultrasharp" series support Mini Display Port, and maybe also the HP series that's the same panels. But neither, so far as I know, makes a display with the built-in hub functionality. On the other hand, both the HP and Dell displays with the same underlying panel are MUCH better quality displays -- they don't put shiny glass in front of it.
if it supports display port but not mini display port you can get an adapter or cable, otherwise you could get a mini display port to hdmi/dvi/vga depending on what your display has and resolution.
The apple one is currently the only thunderbolt display, it also has those extra ports you might find useful
