Alongside the fresh Polaroid Socialmatic camera, Polaroid also announced its new Zip Mobile Printer at CES 2015.
The Zip Mobile Printer is small enough to fit in you pocket and can print 2″ x 3″ Zink prints via a free iOS and Android app. It uses the same size prints and paper found in the Socialmatic camera.
The Zip connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth or NFC. It weighs less than a pound and is less than one inch thick. It will ship in Spring 2015 for $129.99 with a 10-pack of Zink paper.
I think this will be popular. The instant-matic cameras were always hugely popular & this seems a perfect little gizmo that everyone with possible exception of pro photographers will love.
Just read the spot about the Polaroid Socialmatic… I have to say I really think this printer is the superior and more likely to succeed product.
With smartphones so ubiquitous who needs a dedicated camera for capturing silly/fun moments? Snap away on your phone (and your friends too) and just print to this. Save big bucks to and turn that around into purchasing the paper packs.
