Polaroid PoGo Handheld Printer Gets Android App

Polaroid PoGo

We first came across the Polaroid PoGo wireless printer two years ago, and were surprised to hear it’s not only still around, but getting a refresh, including an Android app for sending photos from the phone to the printer. The new PoGo features a larger print format — 3×4 inches — and uses Zero Ink (ZINK) technology that prints using heat.

The new PoGo won’t be out until the holiday season later this year, but Polaroid has already released an Android app to interface with the little printer. Android phone owners can take photos, add text captions and send them via Bluetooth to the PoGo for printing in 50 seconds. You’ll be able to give Grandma a hardcopy photo the next time you visit. The Android app is free, and the new PoGo will set you back around $150 with the 30 photo refill packs costing around $20. Hey, Grandma is worth it.
