About 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 version of the xPrintServer, the new Home Edition provides easy, hassle-free printing from iPads®, iPhones or any other Apple® iOS® device. Designed specifically for home use, the xPrintServer Home Edition works with printers that are connected directly to a computer via a USB port and can support up to two network printers.

The xPrintServer Home Edition is simple; no need to connect to your PC or Mac. Plug it in and begin printing. In addition, multiple PCs or MACs will now be able to share the USB printers over the network. The product will begin shipping in July 2012 and is available for pre-ordering now at store.Lantronix.com .
