LG Electronics Japan is releasing a mobile photo printer called “Pocket photo” in early June. With the “Pocket photo”, you can take a photo with your smartphone and print it out right away, anytime, anywhere.
It’s similar in size to smartphones, so it’s easy to carry around.
To get started using it, install a free dedicated application called “Pocket photo” to a bluetooth compliant smartphone. With this app installed, when you take a photo with your smartphone, you can edit or decorate it with functions on the app and then press “Print” on the smartphone display. The print job is sent wirelessly, and 45 seconds later, it is printed out.
