Cloud Engines today announced a personal private cloud device specifically aimed at media sharing to mobile devices.

Pogoplug Mobile serves as a "mobile cloud companion" allowing users to stream and share photos, music and movies to mobile phones or tablets.

The company said Mobile’s streaming capabilities work with its iOS and Android apps and with Pogoplug desktop software.

The device has an Auto-Import feature that automatically copies photo and video files in the background from mobile devices to the Mobile’s attached storage.

Like all Pogoplug devices, the Mobile connects to a USB drive for its storage, but it also includes an SD card slot. Network connection is via a single Gigabit Ethernet port. There is no built-in Wi-Fi.

Pogoplug Mobile ships next month with an MSRP of $79.99.
