I’ll get the important news out first. My wife, Deanna, found this product. She found it reading some blog, I don’t know which one.
I checked it out and discovered that Amazon was offering it in black for $30, w/ free delivery! Boo-yah! We quickly ordered it, and waited impatiently for it to arrive, today. It’s the Polaroid PoGo. Go get one now!
It didn’t take much to get it charged, paper installed, and paired with the iMac and our G1/Android phones. This thing runs on it’s battery and can accept photos sent to it via Bluetooth. Sweet!
So I took a few photos of it, of course.
Here’s the first photo transferring from our iMac:
Then, here’s a cool animation I put together, of it printing that photo:
And lastly, here’s a pair of shots of the final product:
So, if I haven’t made it clear enough, we love this inexpensive little thing. I highly recommend that you go get one for yourself!
Here’s a link to Amazon:
Sorry folks, I really failed to include some important details on the PoGo. First off, if you want this sweet little thing for use with your iPhone, plan on jailbreaking said iPhone. Also, if you check out Polaroid’s compatibility page, you’ll see that it’s not compatible any Android phones. Not true at all! The polaroid folks didn’t take into consideration that us open-source smartphone users can simply have an app made to offer up increased functionality! Yeah, that means there’s an app in the Android Market for “bluetooth file transfer”. Just search for that phrase, or go here, and use the QR code in the sidebar.
