Fonera 2.0 features usb port, print/file server, plugin API

Details on a beta version of an updated Fonera Wi-Fi sharing router were recently posted on the FON company blog. New features include a usb port, file/printer/scanner/webcam sharing, and a plugin API. Bittorrent support, backup tools and AirTunes-like functionality through plugins seem to be in planning. The unit is already available for purchase in some countries.
