Pogoplug gets WiFi b/g/n Wireless Extender; Pogoplug itself cut to $99

Pogoplug has launched a new WiFi adapter, the Pogoplug Wireless Extender, which allows users of the home NAS adapter to get online via a wireless network rather than stringing ethernet cable to their router.  Up for preorder at $29, the Wireless Extender supports WiFi b/g/n.  Meanwhile Pogoplug are also slashing the price of their eponymous device, down from $129 to $99.

Now users can place the Pogoplug anywhere in their homes without having to permanently connect it to a network router or wired Ethernet port.
The Pogoplug Wireless Extender is compatible with all previous versions of Pogoplugs and the recently announced Pogoplug Biz. Other recent improvements we’ve added to the Pogoplug include cloud printing, the updated Pogoplug Android application, the ability to share and collaborate on documents directly on the Pogoplug, and a very simple system of email upload. We are constantly striving to make the Pogoplug even better, and we would love to hear what your experience has been and how we can improve it. Keep sending those emails!
The Pogoplug Wireless Extender will work on 802.11 b/g/n networks and is available for pre-order now for $29.
