The Dell Wasabi PZ310 is a mobile printer that is almost pocket-sized. It prints borderless 2×3 inch prints in under a minute. It is Bluetooth and PictBridge compatible. Canon 5D Mark II users may finally have a use for the print button (yes, it’s a joke).
While the Wasabi PZ310 is a novel idea, don’t count on it to be anything more than a “fun” toy. And frankly, if you own a DSLR, it’s probably not going to be all that fun. It’s clearly geared toward the MySpace-crazed teen crowd; not that there’s anything wrong with that. It’s just a little too gimicky for those of use who take photography seriously. It comes at an introductory price of $99.
