SAN FRANCISCO, MACWORLD/iWORLD 2013 – Lantronix is showing off at Macworld what they call the xPrintServer, a small device that you can attach to your network to allow nearly any printer to become compatible with your iOS device using AirPrint.
The xPrintServer comes in two models, a consumer edition that should suit the needs of the average user, as well as an office edition more suited for a corporate setting.
The device is easy enough to set up and use, requiring only a network connection as well as a USB connection if you happen to be using a non wireless printer. The home edition limits the number of printers you can use with it, but comes in at only $99.95.
The office edition allows full functionality including unlimited network printer support and will set you back $199.95. Personally, I think this looks like a pretty neat device. It solves the limitations of Apple’s AirPrint solution and looks like a great idea for an iOS-centered workspace. Is this something you could see yourself using?
You can find out more about the xPrintServer over at the Lantronix website.
