Pogoplug has gone through a few evolutions, they’ve had their problems, they’ve made their changes but in the end they’ve listened to their customers.
The whole idea behind Pogoplug is to take the monthly costs out of cloud storage, put it in your control and bring it home.
The Pogoplug Mobile is the latest incarnation in the Pogoplug line of devices. The Mobile is a slick little box that connects to your home Internet Router. Connect some type of storage (either via USB and/or an SD Card) to it and you’re pretty well good to go.
Priced at $79.99, the Pogoplug Mobile has no monthly fees and no limits.
Just pay for the device, once. Pay for your storage, once. That’s all.
With the Pogoplug mobile you can free up your iPhone, iPad or Android device by storing your movies, music and images on your cloud.
Share your media with family and friends, make it all instant and private.
What can the Pogoplug Mobile do?
- Stream entire libraries of music, movies, and photos to an iPhone, iPad, or Android device.
- Automatically sync files across all of your computers and mobile devices.
- Free you from storage limits
- Automatically backup all photos and videos taken using your mobile device over your Wifi or cellular connection.
- Work seamlessly with the Pogoplug Desktop software (it’s not just for mobile devices)
It’s all easy enough to set up too.
Whip the device out of the box, plug it all in, find the SD Card slot and insert an SD Card.
Log onto the Pogoplug.com site and activate your device. As if by magic the site checks and sees the device and you’re all ready to go.
Install the Desktop software and apps – you’re all set.
Along with your own storage devices, sitting in your home – Pogoplug gives you 5 gigs of online storage for free with your Pogoplug account.
Think about it – you’ve turned your 16 gig iPhone into a 37 gig device just by adding a Pogoplug Mobile and a 16 gig SD Card!
It works too – I’ve had a Pogoplug running on my network for some time now and the Pogoplug Mobile is a great addition.
Here’s the Press Release.
