The only thing that I found genuinely annoying, though, is the way the Bolle Photo app pre-renders each photo file before printing. I don’t object to the few seconds it takes to do this, but I do dislike that it dumps this Bolle-rendered version of the photo back into my iPhone’s Camera Roll, cluttering up my photo libraries with multiple, lower-resolution duplicates and miniatures.
The lack of flaps and trays makes for a lovely, clean and robust design
I won’t try to justify the concept of a ‘toaster’ photo printer: you either think these things are a great idea or expensive junk. But compared with other 6x4in printers, the BP-10 is priced reasonably; even the media and dye cartridge, costing £13.23 for 36 prints, works out cheaper per print (36p) than those from many competitors. The only problem is that it really is a one-trick pony: it won’t print from a PC, a Mac, a non-Apple mobile phone, or (AirPrint fans take note) even an iPad. ®

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.
