  IRVINE, CA, Dec 06 (Marketwire) -- 
First launched one year ago, the Lantronix xPrintServer(TM) device has
become increasingly popular within the Apple community by providing
hassle-free, wireless printing from iPad(R), iPhone(R), and iPod touch(R)
mobile devices. Developed by Lantronix (NASDAQ: LTRX), a leading global
provider of smart M2M connectivity solutions, the Lantronix xPrintServer
is offered in two editions, the xPrintServer - Office Edition and the
xPrintServer - Home Edition. The Office Edition is designed for office
use by business and IT professionals, while the Home Edition is intended
for the consumer. Between now and the end of the year, a special 20
percent discount is being offered for both editions at
www.xPrintServer.com.

    "For holiday shoppers looking to add a little joy to the iPhone or iPad
aficionado in their lives, the xPrintServer is a great addition," said
Mark D. Tullio, Vice President of Worldwide Marketing for Lantronix.
"Whether it's students who need to print their homework, business
professionals who need to print documents and presentations, or home
users who would like to print items such as tickets, receipts, photos or
recipes -- anything that can be viewed, opened or read on an iOS device
can be printed with the xPrintServer."

    Mobile Trends
 With the proliferation of mobile devices like the iPad and
iPhone, for use both at home and in the workplace (bring your own device,
also known as BYOD), there is an increased need to easily print from
these mobile devices. In fact, the inability to quickly print from iPads
has been a source of frustration since the launch of the first iPad. The
xPrintServer is an ideal solution, as it requires no apps to download, no
software to install, and no need to buy a new printer. 

    Thumbs-Up Reviews
 The xPrintServer has garnered many accolades from
independent sources, including Best in Show - Macworld 2012 and Engadget
2011 Peripheral of the Year. Numerous publications, ranging from
Apple-specific tech and IT magazines to general interest newspapers, have
reviewed and given praise to the xPrintServer. Some samples include:
