Hammacher Schlemmer has introduced a new device called the Wireless Smartphone Photo Printer that makes printing photos easier for those who are always on-the-go.
To use it, one needs to download a free app which transmits images from a mobile device to the printer through a Wi-Fi network, eliminating the need for cables. The device is compatible with Android-based devices with a minimum of OS 2. Meanwhile, the Apple devices supported are all models of the iPhone, including the most recently-released iPhone 5, the iPod Touch with at least iOS 3, and the iPad.
The Wireless Smartphone Photo Printer comes with a replaceable print cartridge is capable of printing borderless photographs measuring 4 x 6 inches with a resolution of 300 dpi, and as much as 16.7 million colors and 256 gradations. It does so reportedly in less than one minute. Consumers may also order a replacement printer cartridge which costs $24.95.
Unlike many printers available today, the Wireless Smartphone Photo Printer does not make use of ink cartridges, but prints images on a special paper. Such paper is packed with cyan, magenta, and yellow dye crystals. The resulting photos are scratch-resistant, dust-resistant, fingerprint-resistant, and waterproof.
The Wireless Smartphone Photo Printer sells for $219.95. It may be ordered from the Hammacher Schlemmer website. Purchasing the printer provides users with a paper cartridge that offers 10 prints. The device has dimensions of 7 x 6 x 4 and weighs 3 lbs. It furthermore has the Hammacher Schlemmer Lifetime Guarantee, which means that users may return the item “for exchange, credit, or refund” if it disappoints them.
Hammacher Schlemmer is said to be “America’s longest running catalog,” which has been in existence since 1848. It is known for offering items that are innovative and unexpected. It also offers similar products with the Wireless Smartphone Photo Printer such as the iPhone Photo Printer, and the One Step Photograph And Slide To iPhone Converter.
