Lantronix xPrintServer for iOS Devices

If you’re like many people who discovered that their printer was not AirPrint-compatible AFTER the fact, you probably experienced rage like you’ve never felt and you definitely spewed a slew of profanities that you didn’t even know you knew, directly at your computer. Well, good news, kids. You don’t have to worry about anger management therapy just yet, because Lantronix’s xPrintServer, about the size of an iPhone, will allow all iOS-based devices to print to any printer connected to the same network, and you won’t need additional software either. The device simply plugs into an existing network using an RJ45 (CAT5) cable. Side note, though. The xPrintServer won’t work with printers that are connected directly to a computer with a USB port, as it comes with only one network port. So, it will need a LAN port from your router, and an external power source. Business professionals will be happy to know that they can get their hands on the xPrintServer early next year for just $150.
