Lantronix Announces xPrintServer Mobile Printing Support for Kindle Fire

xPrintServer(R) - Google Cloud Print Edition Provides Easy and Secure Mobile Printing for Amazon Kindle Fire Users

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/24/14 -- Lantronix, Inc. (NASDAQ: LTRX), a leading global provider of smart IoT (Internet of Things) connectivity solutions, today announced that its new xPrintServer® - Cloud Print Edition mobile printing device supports printing from the Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HDX tablets from Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN). Without the need to download any software or update their device, Kindle Fire tablet users can now use an xPrintServer to print photos, email attachments (including documents, spreadsheets, images, photos, PDFs, and more), and any webpage via their Chrome browser. The xPrintServer® - Cloud Print Edition is the first and only print server certified by Google to support cloud print technology.

"Today, Amazon is positioning the Kindle Fire HDX as an up and coming solution for enterprise users -- with features such as ease of integration with corporate Exchange servers via ActiveSync, support for advance security features, a native VPN client, and more," said Kurt Busch, president and CEO for Lantronix. "We believe easy mobile printing is a key missing ingredient for enterprise adoption, and are thrilled that our innovative xPrintServer provides a printing solution for the Kindle Fire."

About the Kindle Fire
On September 25, 2013, Amazon introduced the new Kindle Fire HD and the Kindle Fire HDX. According to a 2013 report by Forrester Research, the Kindle Fire was the number two best-selling tablet after Apple's iPad. The Kindle Fire itself is a mini tablet computer version of Amazon.com's Kindle e-book reader, running on a custom version of Google's Android operating system called Fire OS. The device includes access to the Amazon Appstore, streaming movies and TV shows, and Kindle's e-books.

According to app analytics company Localytics, the Kindle Fire in the U.S. constitutes a 33 percent share of the Android tablet market.

About the xPrintServer® - Cloud Print Edition
Roughly the size of a smartphone, the new xPrintServer - Cloud Print Edition is an easy-to-use hardware solution for cloud printing that requires no additional software downloads or printer driver installations. With automatic printer discovery and configuration, mobile printing is simple and hassle-free for both businesses and individual IT professionals. Simply open the box, plug the xPrintServer into the network, and it automatically links all user IDs to all printers on the network, enabling cloud printing in minutes.

The xPrintServer - Cloud Print Edition supports Android devices (smartphones, tablets), and devices (including tablets, smartphones, PCs, and laptops) running Google's Chrome browser. Market research firm IHS iSuppli recently reported that in 2013, cumulative shipments of Android smartphones exceeded one billion units worldwide, and is estimated to approach three billion cumulative units by 2016. Google's Chrome browser is one of the most popular browsers in the world, with more than 310 million active users globally in 2013, according to Google.

The xPrintServer product also supports users of Google Apps -- a cloud-based productivity suite by Google that helps businesses connect and get work done from anywhere on any device. Current market estimates expect the number of businesses using Google Apps, Google Docs, and Chromebooks to exceed 10 million in 2014.
