LG unveils NFC-enabled pocket Photo Printer

The printer takes advantage of Zink Technology so no ink is required in order to print. ZINK stands for Zero Ink - a new way to print in full color without the need for ink cartridges or ribbons. At the heart of the technology is ZINK Paper which looks like regular white photo paper before printing. Heat from a ZINK-enabled device activates the color-forming chemistry within the ZINK Paper, forming all the colors of the rainbow. The price of a single pack of Xink Paper (10 sheets) costs in S. Korea about 5,000 won ($4.9).

Filters and photo editing picture options are provided by an Android app than can be downloaded from Google Play.

The printer can be charged though your 5-pin charging phone charger.

The device will be available in S. Korea athis month and will be priced at 189,000 won ($170).
