Polaroid Instant Digital Pocket Printer
Commented reader Fred on the Polaroid Portable Photo Booth, "I prefer to use my phone as the camera (with all the themed and editing apps available) and then send the image via Bluetooth to this little printer."
From the website:
Portable photo printer delivers full-bleed borderless images that are dry to the touch.
Features automatic image quality optimization with water-resistant, tear-proof, smudge-proof, and peel-off prints.
Prints 2" x 3" borderless color images in under a minute.
Bluetooth hard drive interface.
USB 2.0 hard drive interface.
Note added at 1:03 p.m. today: Dreams of an iPhone with integrated printer. Can you imagine?
Note added at 8:07 a.m. Wednesday, August 22: I told my Crack Research Team®™© last night, right before Gray Cat and I headed up to bed for snoozeville and environs, that they were NOT to do as we were doing but instead, stay up and drill down on the question of whether or not this printer will work with the iPhone.
This morning when we came downstairs, all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed (literally), the entire team was asleep, slumped down over their desks and keyboards.
But they left a few notes.
1. The printer will print from an iPhone — if it is first jailbroken.
2. A YouTube video caption: "Since the device can print directly over Bluetooth, I upload my iPhone 4 photo to Dropbox and print it from my Mac. It totally ruins the portability aspect of the printer but if you have any other phone it should work directly over Bluetooth and that is awesome!"

I had the 1st gen iPhone and then left the handcuffed platform.
The selection of phones shown is limited, and I guess not updated. My Samsung Galaxy Note and LG Optimus 3D Max work fine with the little printer, and they are not shown.
I would be surprised if any smartphone with bluetooth (includes iPhone) don't work with it.
Amazon have a nice return policy in the unlikely event that it doesn't.

Sadly, this doesn't work with an iPhone. In fact, the range of phones it will work with is very limited. :-(
