    Arrow Dell Wasabi Ultramobile Photo Printer Review Discussion

    Remember the days when you would "shake it like a Polaroid picture?" Well, OutKast may want to consider revising those lyrics because Dell has introduced a new player in the inkless printer world, the Dell Wasabi.

    A variety of devices, from smartphones to cameras to laptops, can send images to this accessory, and have them printed out at 2 by 3 inches.

    I have been looking at these for a while, and I want one. I find the Polaroid comment a bit ironic because Polaroid (and Kodak, IIRC) actually does make one just like Dell's called the PoGo. It uses the same paper, too.

    I can confirm that since the iPhone does not support sending and receiving files via BT (and anything else that isn't a mono headset), it will not work with an iPhone (But it will work with a three-year-old freebie Nokia. ). Polaroid says this, and they actually did have something telling any iUser to take it to Apple if they wanted to use this. I wonder if iPhone 3.0 will do it, or if Apple will cripple it?

    I found the statement on Polaroid's site:
    FAQs

    Why is the iPhone not compatible?

    Sorry! The Apple iPhone and iPhone 3G are not compatible.
    Although the iPhone includes Bluetooth, there currently is no Bluetooth transfer capabilities such as "send via Bluetooth".
    If you would like to encourage Apple to become compatible with our printer, please click here or contact Apple directly at 1-800-MY-IPHONE (1-800-694-7466) and request Apple consider enabling the Bluetooth transfer profile (OPP) in their phones.

    The Palm Centro, as far as I know, only have Bluetooth 1.2, so if you were able to pair it, then BT 2.0 isn't required.

    There's an easy response to this: Polaroid stopped offering its Instamatic cameras and film a few years ago, and is selling ZINK printers and cameras instead. Even Polaroid thinks this is a better option.

    That would be true.

    I was very surprised to read that it worked with a Centro after I read that it requires BT 2.0.
    I would rather surf the ocean than the net. Cowabunga!

    Dell states on their site that it needs a Bluetooth 2.0 connection but I got the Wasabi to pair with both a brand new Centro and my really old (in my opinion) Samsung cell phone. Not sure why it worked, but it did!

    Also - Polaroid has two PoGo products available: an ultramobile printer similar to the Wasabi and a digital camera/printer combo. You can get more information about either on Polaroid.com

    Hope that helps!
