We have been to the Gadget Show Live this year and we are proud to announce that in the coming few days we will be covering many things from the show.
First up, LG continues to amaze us with another feather in their cap, a pocket printer. It is effectively very similar to something we know and trust from Polaroid, but in a pocket format. It uses both Bluetooth and NFC to pair with devices, and uses a special format of paper which means that you don’t need to fork out for ink. Read the complete Press Release for more detail:
LG PRINTS MEMORIES ON THE GO WITH ITS WIRELESS POCKET PRINTER
The Pocket Photo makes its UK debut at The Gadget Show Live 2013, offering consumers a creative mobile photo printing experience
UK, 3rd April, 2013 – LG Electronics (LG) today launches the Pocket Photo Smart mobile printer in the UK. Showcased for the first time in the UK at The Gadget Show Live 2013, the Pocket Photo delivers high quality photo prints and provides excellent wireless connectivity, making it the ideal companion for both Android and iOS smartphones. Users simply download the LG Pocket Photo app and make quick edits or embed QR codes before printing. They can also share photos on social media platforms and online, directly from the device.
This savvy device supports Bluetooth and Near Field Communication (NFC) and also employs inkless printing technology from ZINK®, clever technology that eliminates the need for expensive ink cartridges. It is one of the smallest and lightest mobile photo printing devices on the market, easily fitting in the palm of a hand. Very portable and practical, the LG Pocket Photo produces 5.1 x 7.6cm (2 x 3 inch) prints.
“Printed photos offer a certain intimate appeal and tactile pleasure that digital images simply can’t provide,” said Craig West, Head of Marketing, LG Consumer Electronics UK. “Whether you want to keep a photo in your wallet or add it to a personal scrapbook or diary, LG’s smart mobile printer offers the ideal solution.”
Launching at The Gadget Show Live 2013, Birmingham, consumers can experience the Pocket Photo for themselves and try out its many unique features.
The pocket printer will be available in the UK from May 2013 for £129.99.
