Bolle BP-10 brings docked iPhone photo printing, but AirPrint is on its way
The iPhone 4 has been around for a while now (in terms of electronics), but this is the first dedicated photo printer dock that we've seen. The Bolle BP-10 prints 4-inch by 6-inch photos direct from your iPhone 4. It is operated via the Bolle Photo app, which also allows you to print multiple photos on a single sheet.

While this sounds like a great gadget, and a superb holiday gift, it seems strange to release it with Apple's AirPrint around the corner. AirPrint will allow all iOS 4.2 devices to wirelessly print on compatible printers. That makes this basic docking station look a little dated. Especially when the BP-10 costs a steep US$192, we aren't particularly tempted.

Then again, the BP-10 might be relevant to the half-savvy crowd of iPhone users. Yes, you were hip enough to buy an iPhone and use the occasional app, but you aren't about to set up a wireless printer and connect it to your phone. In that case, the BP-10 offers a simple photo printing solution without all the hassle of a wireless printer. It is also far more portable, should you want to print photos while away from your home office.

Bolle Photo Printer-the world's first smart phone photo printer is a very innovative idea from Prinics, South Korea. I have been using this product for the last 2 months and it has made photo printing a very easy experience. Especially when I am with my friends, we take photos and can easily print them. Its fairly simple to use. Download the Bolle photo app from appstore/ google play. Then Just dock your iPhone or any Apple product/ connect your android phone using USB and just print. You can create a collage of 4-10 photos and also take multiple copies. There is an inbuilt cartridge but the draw back is it can print only 36 photos and then it has to be replaced and you can only print photos in 4”X6”. But still worth it, especially for domestic use. And waiting for the next model from Prinics- BP Wi-Fi! That should make photo printing even easier! :)
