Bolle BP-10 iPhone photo printer
Photographs from your mobile without AirPrint
Review Here’s a home photo-print ‘toaster’ with a difference: it can’t be plugged into a computer, nor does it support Wi-Fi. Instead, it comes with a built-in dock for an Apple iPhone. As such, the Bolle BP-10 is promoted as the world’s first dedicated iPhone printer. In other words, it won’t print from anything else.
Bolle BP-10: whenever your iPhone is sitting in the dock, it is being recharged.
The printer is small, shiny and white, and notably lacking in paper trays, flaps and other fragile bits that manufacturers usually invent for users to snap off by accident. The only external features are the dock and power button on top, an output slot at the front, and the power cable exiting the rear.
To print from an iPhone to the BP-10, you first need to download and instal the free Bolle Photo app from the iTunes App Store.
This little program lets you choose a picture from your iPhone’s Camera Roll or other image libraries in Apple’s Photo app, then choose whether you want to output it as a full-size 4x6in print or a selection of miniatures on a single print: a multiple of four or a crammed arrangement of two small and eight tiny versions.
Choose an image using the Bolle Photo app, slot your iPhone into the dock and start printing
This done, you set it to print, pop the iPhone into the BP-10’s dock and let it do the business. Each glossy, borderless, 6x4in printout takes a minute to complete.
Sending pics to gran
Well yes - if your gran didn't have internet/computers/phone whatever.
However this is £120 notes. If you want to send physical, hard copy pictures why don't you just use one of the many, many online print providers and just get them sent to her.... at 5p per photo that's a good 2400 photos (minus postage) for the same cost...
And all good photo management software on PC/Linux (Picassa) or Mac (iPhoto) even let you do that through the app.
@Not entirely pointless
Erm..No. It is entirely pointless...
iPhone -> plugs into PC for iTunes etc synching...Also plugs into PC for standard camera synching action...with the delightfully supplied cable...
Photos now on PC within 30 secs....Now you can print to your normal printer...or upload them to a website for your photo to be made into a canvas art piece that will be your Gran's birthday present.....
Bolle BP-10...brought to you by the same people as "Tits on a Bull" and "Chocolate Teapot"
I do all the time. She uses thunderbird to view them. At 73 she's probably nowhere near the oldest person either. Granted she is using quite a large font nowadays but linux is far better than windows at setting the ENTIRE OS to large fonts. She has 3 icons on her desktop, internet, email and documents. She keeps everything in emails and doesnt mind spending 15 minutes searching for a particular emai.
Still, she switches her machine on and it works.
