We spent some time with Pogoplug at IFA back in September and one of the things we discussed was something they called Pogoplug Cloud. Well now they have released it and we can tell you all about it.
Pogoplug is cloud storage for your mobile life. Access all your files, photos, music and movies wherever you are. Automatically import your phone’s camera roll to your cloud so you can share the photos and videos on your phone seconds after you capture them—friends and family can watch your videos instantly!
Pogoplug gives you 5GB of free cloud storage, enabling you to store, stream and share your files and media wherever you are. If you ever need more storage, Pogoplug offers infinite expansion by letting you buy more online storage or host your own cloud with a Pogoplug device.
Here is the press release:
