The “Bolle BP-10” is the world’s first iPhone dedicated photo printer. You may be asking, “Why?” Well, with the release of iOS 4.2, AirPrint, and other options like Printopia, printing has become much more of a reality on iOS devices.
All available methods for printing from an iOS device rely on either another computer to serve the actual files, or a wireless printer. The “Bolle BP-10” lets you dock your iPhone and print directly. I could see iPhone-based printers like this one become a huge hit in the technology consumer market…
The “Bolle BP-10″ allows you to print from any iPhone through a standard 30-pin connector. The printer only prints 4″x6”, which isn’t too bad for causal photo printing needs.
The major set-back to this printer is that it only supports photos. The idea of printing documents off my Dropbox app sounded really appealing when I first heard about this device. And at the price of £119.99, I wonder if this printer is worth the price.
Even if this may not be the iPhone printer we all wanted, at least it’s a step in the right direction. I predict we’ll be seeing lots of new and interesting iPhone printing products in the near future.
