Bolle BP-10 iPhone photo printer

Photographs from your mobile without AirPrint

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.

Verdict

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. ®
