CES 2009: PoGo Instant Digital Camera
Does anyone even print out pictures taken anymore? I certainly don’t since most phones or cameras don’t make it easy for us, but Polaroid is bringing back the magic of the instant pictures with its Polaroid PoGo Instant digicam. Announced at CES 2009, the PoGo Instant can print out 2 x 3-inch photos in under 60 seconds on sticky labels and special paper you have to buy separately.
Keep in mind, the PoGo camera still uses zero ink, but you do have to buy Zink paper in order to use it. The 7-megapixel camera appears to be pretty bulky, features a 3-inch display, and has several controls besides the screen that let you zoom, print, preview, and discard images as you take them. The camera will be available this Spring for about $199, while packs of Zink paper will likely retail for $4.99 and $12.99. Look for it in stores soon.
