LG Pocket Photo Wirelessly Prints Memories On The Go
LG Electronics (LG) today announced the launch of the PD221 Pocket Photo smart mobile printer in the UAE. The LG Pocket Photo delivers high quality photo prints and provides excellent wireless connectivity, making it the ideal companion for both Android and iOS smartphones.
“Printed photos offer a certain appeal and pleasure that digital images simply can’t provide,” said Mr. D. Y. Kim, President of LG Electronics Gulf FZE. “Whether you want to keep a photo in your wallet or add it to a personal scrapbook or diary, prints from LG’s smart mobile printer enable users to enjoy images taken on their smartphone simply and effortlessly.”
The stylish LG Pocket Photo is one of the smallest and lightest mobile photo printing devices on the market, measuring just 72 x 120 x 24 mm and weighing just 215 grams. It easily fits in the palm of one’s hand or inside a jacket pocket when not in use. Conveniently portable and practical, prints from the Pocket Photo measure 5.1 x 7.6 cm (2 x 3 inch), perfect for sharing or displaying. After downloading and installing a free app to their smartphones, users can connect their smartphones to the Pocket Photo and begin printing immediately.
The range of editing tools included on the Pocket Photo app makes it a snap to embed QR codes and perform simple touch-ups, including cropping and coloring. With the ability to print QR codes on photographs, the LG Pocket Photo delivers a creative way of connecting a physical image to an online community. QR codes can be read with any barcode scanning app, linking people to social networking sites or other online content. The Pocket Photo can be used to print customized birthday invitations, thank you cards, or even business cards with a personal QR code. Printing images with QR codes makes it possible for business owners to connect customers to online information about their brand or upcoming store events. The customizable photos can also be integrated into scavenger hunts or other fun interactive games. The opportunities for being social and creative with the LG Pocket Photo are practically limitless.
The LG Pocket Photo supports Bluetooth and Near Field Communication (NFC). It also employs inkless printing technology from ZINK®. This technology eliminates the need for expensive ink cartridges as it uses heat to activate the color-forming chemistry within the ZINK 2.0 paper. In comparison with conventional printing processes, ZINK’s inkless paper system preserves images longer and produces less smearing.
