BERG announces Little Printer and its BergCloud service

BERGLondon announced this week a duo of new projects coming out of their studio in what they say is the first of many:

Little Printer:
- A thermal printer that communicates wirelessly through a BERGCloud bridge that is connected to your router.
- It gathers a list of your favorite publications and subscriptions you have set up using their backend service to create a mini-newspaper custom suited to your daily needs.
- Will ship in 2012 and will be available for preorder shortly.

- Is the brains behind their series of devices that can be connected to without the need for a PC (via your smartphone)
