Pogoplug keeps getting more and more useful by the day. The company is announcing that they are now shipping their Pogoplug Wireless Extender we told you about recently and are including a new feature to the firmware that will enable the device to function as a print server. According to the press release, Pogoplug will be compatible with all HP and Epson USB-connected printers manufactured from the year 2005 and above. In addition, the new printer feature will allow Pogoplug to wirelessly take print orders remotely (aka cloud printing) from an iPhone, iPad, Android or any other Internet enabled device.

Pogoplug Gains Two New Products and Enables Web Printing!

A series of new Pogoplug features and products go live today!

Today we are delighted to begin rolling out a new firmware update to our customers that activates a number of new features we have announced in recent months, including our new cloud printing feature. In addition, both the Pogoplug Wireless Extender and Pogoplug Biz are now shipping.

The print feature that we announced at the beginning of summer allows users to print from iPhones, iPads, Android devices, and any other Internet enabled device from anywhere in the world! The setup is simple; all users need to do is plug any HP or Epson printer made since 2005 into a USB port on the Pogoplug, or if it’s a network printer, simply have it on the same network as the Pogoplug. The firmware update begins rolling out to Pogoplug users today, and all users should have the update by the end of the week.

Our newest product, the Pogoplug Wireless Extender, allows users to place the Pogoplug anywhere in their homes where there is wireless internet access, without having to connect it to a network router or wired Ethernet port. The Pogoplug Wireless Extender begins shipping today.

Pogoplug Biz is an all-new version of Pogoplug specifically for businesses that gives business owners all the great features from the original Pogoplug, along with business specific features like customizable emails, a custom look and feel, file download and access statistics, and multiple users.
