Dell has unveiled their Wasabi ultra mobile Photo Printer. Using Bluetooth technology the PZ310 holds up to 12 sheets of adhesive-backed paper. Because it uses Zero Ink paper, you will never run. When your battery is low, Wasabi’s happy face LED icon goes sad. Connect to your camera phone or PC wirelessly and print with a PictBridge USB connection. The printer comes with a 1-Year Advanced Exchange Warranty that can be extended. You can get it for $99.00 after an instant rebate of $50.00 online.

Joen Hwan Ju’s RITI Printer runs on used coffee grounds or tea leaves. To use the eco-friendly device, one places the leftovers in the ink case on the top, inserts a piece of paper, then moves the case left and right and the image is printed. Joen mentions that another perk is that you will get the smell of the beverage, which undoubtedly would be closer to aromatherapy than your basic ink. The idea is nice but we’re not so sure about the time to print and clean-up afterwards. Joen’s prototype is part of core77’s Greener Gadgets Design Competition.

Sharp has two new AQUOS devices, the HN-PP100 and HN-PP150. Each is a cross between a 300 x 300 dpi photo printer and memory card reader. Display your images on your TV in one of their slideshow options or print them. The Photo Player also has an IR receiver for sending those photos to the player as well as an HDMI output. Unfortunately, the player does not have HD capability and can only store the photos if you have a NAS and the HN-PP150 model.

As cell phones now can do multi-functions such as play music, shop, have GPS and do our email, perhaps it won’t be that far off before the Ply Concept Phone from Hideo Kanbara is more than a prototype. Made of multi-layered plywood (hence, the name,) it features a photo printer, mini-digital projector, and game controller. The phone was recently on display in Harajuku, Japan at the KDDI Designing Studio. The rest of us will just have to wait a while longer to see it.

Polaroid has decided to go back to what it does best, instant printing cameras. The digital cam will have an on-board printer for 4x3-inch prints, their original image size. Amateur Photographer is holding a competition for the company to help design it by asking 6 questions, such as whether you think it should have an external battery for extended printing. The competitions ends August 31. We assume you have to be a real photobug for this one because as far as we could tell, the prize is knowing that you contributed.
