LG Electronics will showcase its new Pocket Photo 2.0 (PD239) smart mobile printer at the 2014 international Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

LG’s latest Pocket Photo device provides wireless connectivity with NFC and Bluetooth, enabling users to print custom 5.1*7.6cm (2*3 inch) pictures from most of today’s tablets and smartphones. It is compatible with Google Android and Apple iOS. The LG Pocket Photo 2.0 is one of the smallest mobile photo printing devices on the market, according to LG.

The LG Pocket Photo 2.0 prints pictures rendered at 313dpi, more than perfect for sharing or displaying. After downloading and installing the free Pocket Photo editingapp, users can wirelessly connect their smartphone or tablet and begin printing immediately.

The Pocket Photo 2.0 uses the proven Zink technology, eliminating the need for expensive ink cartridges, ribbons or toner. Zink printing technology utilizes heat to activate the necessary color-forming chemistry-embedded in each sheet of paper. Compared to conventional printing processes, ZINK’s inkless paper system preserves images for longer and produces less smearing. The Pocket Photo 2.0 can print30 photoson a single charge.

“Printed photos have a sentimental appeal that digital images are not truly able to replicate,” said Byung-hoon Min, senior vice president of LG’s home entertainment company. “Our newest Pocket Photo embraces the emotional aspect of the printed photo while offering a level of portability and convenience that are missing from today’s digital cameras.”

Available inpink, jewel white and lime yellow, the new Pocket Photo is now on sale in China and will be rolling out globally in 2014.

Now if only they could produce small smartphones, that would be even better!

So combined with your smartphone, it will be like Fuji's Insta-Pix but in digital.
The paper supply likely won't be as easily accessible as Fuji's.

This is an LG press release (in bad English), no critique, speculation or review.
