When Apple (News - Alert) launched the first iPad, it was hailed as a mini marvel (with a few rough spots) but unanimously, almost everyone rued the fact that they couldn’t print from it. Since then, the core of Apple has changed a lot, mobile devices have proliferated, the “bring your own device” (BYOD) concept has caught on and wireless printing from Apple devices has become a reality.
Enter the Lantronix (News - Alert) xPrintServer device, an easy-to-use hardware solution that works simply and easily. Users just have to open the box, power it, connect it to the net and print. It uses the iOS native print menu, doesn’t require software downloads or drivers, involves no configuration and gives hassle-free printing from anywhere, anytime.
"For holiday shoppers looking to add a little joy to the iPhone (News - Alert) or iPad aficionado in their lives, the xPrintServer is a great addition," said Mark D. Tullio, vice president of worldwide marketing for Lantronix.
Running iOS version 4.2 or later, it can print to almost any USB or network connected printer. This is indeed great news for iOS holiday shoppers, students, businessmen that want to print documents and home users that need to print anything they view on their iPad or iPhone.
The xPrintServer has done pretty well for itself and has been recognized by numerous publications.
It is available in two editions: the lantronix xPrintServer-Office Edition for office use, and the home edition for the consumer.
Through December 2012, a special 20-percent discount is being offered on both editions. While the Office Edition retails for $199.95 MSRP, the xPrintServer - Home Edition retails for $99.95 MSRP.
OKI (News - Alert) Data Americas has announced a reseller agreement with Lantronix, a major global provider of smart M2M connectivity solutions. Through this agreement, OKI Data will become the first printer manufacturer to resell Lantronix's award-winning xPrintServer iOS print server appliance.
