Brought to in conjunction with Haus of Gaga (if that doesn't sound like a brothel for babies, I don't know what does), Polaroid has announced for June the first in their Gaga-designed "Grey Label" (GL) product line: the Polaroid GL10 Instant Mobile Printer. The device utilizes Polaroid's "Zink" technology (zero-ink) to instantly print high quality 3"x4" pictures straight from your mobile device. If there were any doubt about Gaga's involvement, note the marketing speak in the press release:
...frees digital images trapped on hard drives and cell phones.
The GL10 retails for $170, available now through pre-order. Next up, hopefully we see Polaroid/Gaga's photo-snapping glasses originally spoken of at the most recent Consumer Electronics Show that will surely pair quite nicely with this printer. See below for product specs, or hit the site above to preorder.
Available starting in June, the next generation of the Polaroid instant printing experience, the Polaroid Grey Label GL10 instant mobile printer frees digital images trapped on hard drives and cell phones. Marrying the convenience of today's digital images and the original Polaroid instant experience, the 15-ounce printer works from most mobile phones wirelessly via Bluetooth and from most digital cameras, Windows PCs and Macs via a USB cable and provides the classic Polaroid instant experience using the ZINK® Technology. The first product in Polaroid and Lady Gaga's new Polaroid Grey Label line, the GL10 features a small size, intuitive design and easy-to-use feature set that produces full bleed and contemporary 3x4" photos in the Polaroid Classic Border logo in less than one minute - making it a portable photo booth that allows you to bring Polaroid magic wherever you go.
