Mini is all the rage. If you can’t get enough portable electronic devices in your life, the ultra-small inkless Wasabi PZ310 printer may be perfect for you. You might have seen blog post about this little thing on sites like Engadget or Ubergizmo.
So, how small is it? It weighs 7 ounces and has dimensions of 4.8 in. x 2.8 in. x 0.9 in. But, it’s not just the small size that makes it noteworthy. It also features an inkless technology called ZINK (or zero ink). By that I mean no ink cartridges or ribbons to replace. And it also means smudges, ink spills, refills and drying time a thing of the past. The key to the technology is the paper itself. Together with this sticky back photo paper, the Wasabi PZ310 can reproduce photos with millions of vivid colors. It can print 2 in. x 3 in. borderless photos in less than a minute.
The tiny printer works with Bluetooth 2.0 technology, which allows you to transfer images wirelessly from all kinds of mobile devices like camera phones, digital cameras, laptops or a small netbooks like Dell’s Mini 9. Check this site to make sure your camera phone is supported. If your device is not equipped with Bluetooth, the PZ310 printer supports PictBridge technology as well. Either way it makes it easy to share wallet-size photos anytime and anywhere.
Update: For a bit more clarification, the PZ310 works with many
Bluetooth 2.0-enabled phones that support at least one of the
following file transfer types: FTP, BPP, BIP or OPP. Unfortunately, the iPhone does not support any of these.
The regular price of the printer will be $149, but we’re introducing it with a temporary promotional price of $99. And our folks didn’t want to compromise on style. Wasabi features a high-polished aluminum finish for an ergonomic look and sleek design that comes in three colors-pink, black and blue.
