CLOUD STORAGE COMPANY Cloud Engines has launched Pogoplug Mobile, a mobile cloud companion that frees devices from storage limits.

The product allows users to stream entire libraries of photos, music and movies from their homes to their mobile phones or tablets.

It enables users to share unlimited amounts of photos, videos and other content from mobile devices instantly and privately. Users need to link it to their Ethernet connection and can share any content on USB or SD storage through an Android or Iphone app on a mobile or tablet.

Pogoplug Mobile allows users to stream entire libraries of music, movies and photos. It offers permanent storage and backup of all photos and videos taken using the mobile device and automatically backs up photos and movies from a mobile device to Pogoplug Mobile wirelessly.

The Pogoplug Mobile device works with the Pogoplug desktop software and Pogoplug mobile apps for the Iphone, Ipad and Android 2.2 and later devices.

The device will be available in October for a suggested retail price of $79.99 or £59.99. Those keen to get their hands on one before launch can pre-order from today at

Pogoplug's IOS and Android apps are free and available for download in the Itunes and Android Market app stores.

"People today have an almost unlimited need to create and consume multimedia content on their mobile devices," said Daniel Putterman, CEO and founder of Cloud Engines. "Unfortunately, their devices just can't keep up; mobile storage remains too expensive. Pogoplug Mobile solves this problem by providing an incredible streaming and at-home backup solution that turns any mobile device into an limitless media library."

"With iCloud on the horizon, the timing for Pogoplug Mobile couldn't be better," continued Putterman. "If you're an iOS user, Pogoplug Mobile will be a perfect at-home iCloud companion. For Android users, it's at-home iCloud for Android." µ
