Summary: Came in around 2 weeks since it had to be delivered to Singapore. The package was in good condition. Its in a sealed box. It has a manual in 3 languages, warranty card and a code for the bluetooth. It came with a 10-pack film. Which was great so far. Problem 1 - The charger is a US power adapter pin. Unfortunately my country uses the UK adapter.
Summary: This is a typical Polaroid blunder so what's new!!! They advertise this works using Bluetooth with your smart phone. NO APPLE IPHONE WORK WITH THIS DEVICE! Unfortunately Polaroid fails to mention this when listing specs.
Summary: I recently purchased the Portable GL10 Zink Printer from Amazon.com. I purchased the product in the view that it was a great idea and an extremely useful way of bringing back the old polaroid photograph style. However, whenever I downloaded the software from the Polaroid website which accompanies the printer, and decided to choose one of the overlaying filters for the photograph, my printer is no longer able to print the normal white border or any other filter.
Summary: I do quite a bit of mixed-media art and design layouts and this machine has really made my day. Simple, plug in a play (I use my MacBook) and the downloadable software from Polaroid's website. Printing up quick little pictures has never been more fun, and you can get the old Polaroid look and feel with the ZINK paper. Sweet.
Great for Android phone... crap for everything else

Summary: If you plan to use this with anything other an Android device or digital camera, stop reading now. It is not worth your money or hassle. Most of the magic of this device is from the promise of wireless printing from a smartphone. This printer simply will not work with iOS, Windows Phone, or any other type of device.
Summary: I looked at several portable printers before I chose this one because it is the smallest printer that will produce satisfactory sized photos. The printer is about 4.5" x 3" x 1.25", or the size of a small book. Its not too heavy, but it does have a sizable charger (about 3.5" x 2" x1"). The POGO printer is smaller, but it is more for fun due to the small size of the photo stickers it prints. I travel and want to give instant prints on the fly as gifts.
Summary: back in 1999 i wrote to polaroid begging them to somehow combine digital camera technology and their instant polaroid prints. no one ever replied but now it's finally here! you have the best of both worlds: the ability to take as many pictures as you want without wasting any prints and the ability to print instantaneously the exact photo that you want...no ink, no cartridges, prints that don't smear...that you can share!
