PRINT MEMORIES ON-THE-GO WITH NEW LG POCKET PHOTO
MANILA, Jul. 8, 2013 – Sharing and displaying printed photographs has never been easier with the new LG Pocket Photo. LG Electronics (LG) introduces the PD233 Pocket Photo, an innovative smart mobile printer. As an ideal companion for both Android and iOS smartphones, LG Pocket Photo delivers high quality photo prints and provides excellent wireless connectivity.
“Printed photos offer a certain appeal and pleasure that digital images simply can’t provide,” said Seog-ho Ro, senior vice president of LG’s Home Entertainment Company. “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 can easily fit the palm of a hand or inside a jacket pocket when not in use. Conveniently portable and practical, photo prints from the Pocket Photo only measure 5.1 x 7.6 cm (2 x 3 inches).
LG Pocket Photo supports Bluetooth and Near Field Communication (NFC). It also employs inkless printing technology from ZINK®, a technology that eliminates the need for expensive ink cartridges. ZINK’s inkless paper system preserves images longer and produces less smearing.
It enables users to print photos as many times as they wish with a much faster printing speed. After downloading and installing the free application, users can connect their Android or iOS smartphones to the Pocket Photo and begin printing immediately. The range of editing tools included on the Pocket Photo application makes it easier to embed QR codes and perform simple touch-ups, including cropping and coloring.
QR codes can be read with any barcode scanning application, linking people to social networking sites or other online content.
The Pocket Photo is ideal for use in printing customized birthday invitations, ‘thank you’ cards, or even business cards with a personal QR code. Printing images with QR codes helps business owners to connect customers to online information about their brand or upcoming store events while the customizable photos can also be integrated into scavenger hunts or other fun interactive games during parties.
“LG understands that for today’s young generation of mobile users, instant sharing is an important part of the experience,” Ro added. “Pocket Photo is an ideal accessory for anyone with an active digital lifestyle.”
LG Pocket Photo will be available in the Philippines this August. To find out more about Pocket Photo, visit www.lg.com/ph or www.lgblog.com.ph, like LG’s official Facebook page “LG Philippines”, or follow LG on Twitter or Instagram using the hash tag #LGPhilippines.
