NEW YORK, NY, Jun 21, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) —
, a leading global provider of smart M2M
connectivity solutions, today announced the launch of its new
patent-pending xPrintServer(TM) – Home Edition, designed specifically
for home use by consumers wishing to print from their iPad(R),
iPhone(R) or iPod(R) Touch to a USB or network printer. Roughly the
size of an iPhone, the new xPrintServer – Home Edition is premiering
at today’s Digital Experience, a leading consumer electronics media
event in New York.
A follow-on product to the hugely popular Network Edition of the
xPrintServer, the new Home Edition provides easy, hassle-free
printing from iPads, iPhones or any other Apple(R) iOS(R) 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

network to all networked PCs or Macs in addition to the iOS devices.
“We are incredibly excited to launch the newest member in the
award-winning xPrintServer family,” said Mak Manesh, vice president
of product management for Lantronix. “With more than 55 million U.S.
