Pocket size photo printer (Mini Photo Printer)
LG launched a PD233 pocket photo printer. This printer can be connected to Smartphone and tablet through Bluetooth. It can be connected with android and operating system devices by wireless connection. Compatible with both Android and IOS devices and operating wirelessly over either Bluetooth or near field communications (NFC), the Pocket Photo printer is capable of printing 2x3in images. You can upload and share on Facebook, Twitter, and more.
Wirelessly print Smartphone photos whenever, wherever. Even without PCs or cables, you can print memorable photos just by pressing the Send button, with Bluetooth and NFC support, Pocket photo can quickly print your photos with no cable necessary wherever you are.
The photo paper that the Pocket Photo printer requires has to be specially purchased online and is rather costly, retailing on Amazon for around £16.50 for just 30 cards. or 55p per photo. Once you’ve overcome the shock of spending the better part of £20 to 30 small pieces of paper, these are easily loaded into the printer by opening its spring-loaded back door.

The LG Pocket Photo app needs to be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play store to enable the printer to function. The app allows you to search through your phone’s camera roll or media folders to load an image and alter it with Instagram-like filters, annotations and photo frames. Through the app you can also add a QR code that, once scanned by a Smartphone, will present the viewer with a message that you edited into it earlier.
Once image editing is complete, hitting the print button in the app send to print.
If you have an Android phone with NFC, you can open a photo in the Android photo gallery then simply tap your phone atop the Pocket Photo and the two will be paired using NFC, initiating a printout, although we didn’t get a chance to try this as we were using the printer with an iPhone.
