Pogoplug has announced their first mobile-focused, multimedia streaming hardware product today, the Pogoplug Mobile. What does it do? Oh that’s easy… and awesome. It serves as companion to their cloud service and allows users to stream their music, movies, photos from home to an Android (or iOS) device. Pogoplug Mobile not only streams and shares, but the Auto-Import feature automatically backup all photos, movies, music and other content on the device. All of this is done in the background and without storage restrictions. The software/hardware works seamlessly with your existing Pogoplug desktop software and keeps your files hosted on your own hard drive or SD memory card.
Pre-orders are being taken as of today, September 1st at pogoplug.com/mobile for $79.99 USD with shipping expected October 1st. The Pogoplug software to turn you computer into a personal cloud is free to download. If you wish to stream music outside of your home network or to stream movies anywhere, you’ll need to pay a one-time fee of $29, which provides a Pogoplug Premium software license. From there, the software can be installed any and all computers tied to one Pogoplug account.
