The highly anticipated HP MediaSmart Server iStream application for Apple iPhone is now available, at least in North America it seems. Users can download the free iPhone application directly in iTunes (search for “HP MediaSmart” to narrow the results), or using the App Store application directly on the iPhone itself.
Personally I have already downloaded this app; I am really looking forward to playing with it and will report back in the forums.
The HP MediaSmart 2.5 software update has not yet been spotted in the wild but we are hoping it won’t be long now.
