iPhone, iPad Users Point to xPrintServer as Hot Holiday Tech Accessory
Lantronix Mobile Printing Solution Easiest on the Market; Thumbs Up Reviews and Holiday Discount
Irvine, Calif. – December 6, 2012 – First launched one year ago, the Lantronix xPrintServerTM device has become increasingly popular within the Apple community by providing hassle-free, wireless printing from iPad®, iPhone®, and iPod touch® mobile devices. Developed by Lantronix (NASDAQ: LTRX), a leading global provider of smart M2M connectivity solutions, the Lantronix xPrintServer is offered in two editions, the xPrintServer – Office Edition and the xPrintServer – Home Edition. The Office Edition is designed for office use by business and IT professionals, while the Home Edition is intended for the consumer. Between now and the end of the year, a special 20 percent discount is being offered for both editions at www.xPrintServer.com.
“For holiday shoppers looking to add a little joy to the iPhone or iPad aficionado in their lives, the xPrintServer is a great addition,” said Mark D. Tullio, Vice President of Worldwide Marketing for Lantronix. “Whether it’s students who need to print their homework, business professionals who need to print documents and presentations, or home users who would like to print items such as tickets, receipts, photos or recipes – anything that can be viewed, opened or read on an iOS device can be printed with the xPrintServer.”
With the proliferation of mobile devices like the iPad and iPhone, for use both at home and in the workplace (bring your own device, also known as BYOD), there is an increased need to easily print from these mobile devices. In fact, the inability to quickly print from iPads has been a source of frustration since the launch of the first iPad. The xPrintServer is an ideal solution, as it requires no apps to download, no software to install, and no need to buy a new printer.
The xPrintServer has garnered many accolades from independent sources, including Best in Show – Macworld 2012 and Engadget 2011 Peripheral of the Year. Numerous publications, ranging from Apple-specific tech and IT magazines to general interest newspapers, have reviewed and given praise to the xPrintServer. Some samples include:
