Capable Networks LLC and Presto Services Inc. announce the creation of, a new online community serving users of the Presto Service and HP Printing Mailbox.

Presto helps people who use computers to easily share email and photos with family and friends who aren't online. The Presto Service delivers email and digital photos from any email-capable computer, mobile phone or PDA to an HP Printing Mailbox via a regular phone line in the recipient's home, without them needing a PC or Internet connection. The messages are formatted into beautiful Presto Mail and the HP Printing Mailbox prints them out automatically.

"This new online community developed by Capable Networks will allow Presto users to share their experiences and openly discuss the ins and outs of the product," said Peter Radsliff, Presto's Vice President of Marketing. "PrestoPlace is a valuable resource not only for the community of Presto users, but for our company as well. It will provide an avenue for user feedback and opinion, which can help improve our current offering as well as potential new products and services."

"We are thrilled to add to our growing network of online communities," said Ron Repking, CEO of Capable Networks. "We believe that Presto will benefit considerably from the close customer interaction and word-of-mouth exposure that our user communities provide."

Capable Networks recently announced the creation of three new online communities and the acquisition of a fourth. The launch means that Capable's network of sites has doubled since June and now includes 10 online user communities.
