Lantronix launches consumer wireless printing solution for iPad and Apple iOS devices
Jun 22, 2012 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) --
M2M connectivity solutions provider Lantronix (NASDAQ: LTRX) launched its new patent-pending xPrintServer - Home Edition, designed specifically for home use by consumers wishing to print from their iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch to a USB or network printer.
Roughly the size of an iPhone, the new xPrintServer - Home Edition premiered in New York.
A follow-on product to the Network Edition of the xPrintServer, the new Home Edition provides easy, hassle-free printing from iPads, iPhones or any other Apple iOS device. Designed specifically for home use, the xPrintServer - Home Edition adds support for USB printers and supports up to two network printers. Now iOS users can wirelessly print emails, web pages, photos, and more to their existing printer without having to install any software or device drivers. The xPrintServer - Home Edition is simple; no need to connect to a PC or Mac. Open it. Plug it in. Begin printing. The product will begin shipping in July 2012 and is available for pre-ordering now at www.Lantronix.com.
"With the proliferation of mobile devices like the iPad and iPhone, more and more consumers are using them as mainstream, computing devices," said J. Gerry Purdy, Ph.D., principal analyst, MobileTrax LLC. "Until recently, the problem with using these devices as PC replacements has been the inability to easily print. The xPrintServer offers a simple solution to fill this market need."
The xPrintServer - Home Edition has the added benefit of transforming USB printers to network printers. Now instead of being tied to only one PC or Mac, the USB printer will be available over the home network to all networked PCs or Macs in addition to the iOS devices.
