Have you ever tried to take a picture with your mobile phone and the "Sorry memory full message" appeared? Once again, you are frustrated, you missed a great shot because you forgot to clear old photos off of your mobile phone. It happens to everyone, but it doesn’t have to anymore. Polaroid and Lady Gaga have paired up to create the Polaroid Grey Label line, their flagship product, which is a printer that allows you to print photos directly from your mobile phone.

The GL10 Instant Mobile Printer - weighing a mere fifteen ounces - is fun, portable, and produces 3”x4” high quality, color prints. With ZINK Zero Ink Technology, you can make prints from photos - not only those stored on your mobile phone - but from digital cameras or on hard drives as well. Polaroid apps lets you print wirelessly from many smart phones, which include Blackberry, Android, and Windows compatible phones. A USB makes it possible to unleash images from your PictBridge-enabled (an industry standard) digital camera. And lets not forget about the photos on your PC or MAC. All it takes is the Polaroid USB application or Bluetooth to enjoy photos from your desktop computer. Also, the prints aren’t the delicate images of yesterday that used to spit out of grandma’s brown, pop-up, Polaroid camera. In less than a minute, you’ll be holding a fully developed photograph that is both smudge-proof and water resistant, thanks to ZINK’s thermal technology. You can choose to produce your prints with a classic Polaroid border or in full-bleed format.

"Everyday, digital photos capture, memorialize and shape our lives - but they are not given the chance to inspire us because they die on cell phones or digital cameras," said Lady Gaga, Polaroid's Creative Director. "I created the GL10 because everyone loves to take photos with their mobile phones - and the next evolution is to combine digital images with instant photography, bringing photos to life in vibrant colors that you can share, from the palm of your hand."

Scott W. Hardy, President, Polaroid adds, "For more than 74 years, Polaroid photos have intrinsically carried personal meaning, unique to each person who views them, and now the GL10 fuses this experience with today's digital photos. As we launch the first Polaroid Grey Label product at retail, old and new fans of Polaroid can experience seeing their photos of today in a way that only Polaroid can deliver, with the instant printing experience."

The Polaroid GL10 Instant Mobile Printer is available for purchase from,, and J&R for $169.00. In addition, thirty sheets of the ZINK GL10 photo paper sells for $19.99. For more information, visit
