A Printer For The iPhone and Why Should it FailBy Shaon, Gaea News Network

Air Print is the latest in the series of increasingly odd assortment for extensions to the IOS devices. I could understand the audio docks but now people have decided that people with an iPhone or the likes really require a printer to go along with it. I mean printing is fine and all but the bulky contraption would fail the principle Apple’s famed devices be it the iPhone or the iPod touch stand on the principle of uber mobility with each subsequent generation shaving some precious inches from the last like some famed super model. And now thanks to this device Bolle BP-10 which I presume won’t really be a rage users can tug a bulky printer around themselves all for the sake of nabbing 4″X6″ prints on the go.
The most ridiculous aspect of this device is that you actually need to dock your phone on the printer. All this while Wi-Fi based printing solutions are like dime a dozen. For a device that supports a measly A6 print one would hope that it would make up for it by supporting all of the iOS devices. But unfortunately the the iPhone 3G, the 3GS, and the iPhone 4 are supported. Whats more the device is going to set you back by $ 192. I bet they really took Apple’s pricing policy too seriously without ever considering the kind of technology they deliver are actually to make things better for the average user.
