    <p>Remember the days when you would "shake it like a Polaroid picture?" Well,&nbsp;OutKast may want to consider revising those&nbsp;lyrics because Dell has introduced a new player in the inkless printer world, the Dell Wasabi.</p> <p>A variety of devices, from smartphones to cameras to&nbsp;laptops, can send images to this accessory, and have them printed out at 2 by 3 inches.</p>

    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. :D ). Polaroid says this, and they actually did have something telling any iUser to take it to Apple if they wanted to use this. :D I wonder if iPhone 3.0 will do it, or if Apple will cripple it?

    I found the statement on Polaroid's site:

    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.

    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!
