Nokia’s Mobile Printing Service

July 23, 2007 in Wireless Industry News

Nokia’s latest foray into the photo printing market is the XpressPrint service, which so far is only available to European Nseries phone users.

Nokia's XpressPrint application allows European users to get photos printed and delivered.

Nokia’s XpressPrint application allows European users to get photos delivered quickly and easily.

The concept is absurdly simple – snap a picture, open up the XpressPrint application, select a photo option (put your picture on a set of 10×13 prints, a greeting card, a mug, or maybe a teddy bear), and pay by credit card. The photos will be sent to CeWe Color for processing and you’ll receive them in a couple of days.

So far, the software is only compatible with a couple of specific Nseries phones – the N73, N73 Music Edition, N93, N80ie, N76, and the N95. I’d also assume the N93i, but unfortunately it’s not listed. Maybe they switched it with the N76 by mistake?

It’s a cool idea, with one little problem: previewing your photos (and the final product) on your mobile phone is always for me a bit of a hit-or-miss. On such small screens, almost every photo looks good – until you transfer it to a PC and discover that the picture received a free Motion Blur thanks to those shaky hands of yours.

Still, I’d love to see the service in the USA, but unfortunately due to that sad fact of life in which the USA is about 2 years behind Europe when it comes to anything wireless, it doesn’t seem likely in the near future. Whatever happened to NFC, anyway?

Send your loved ones teddy bears with your smiling face. Or how about a beer mug?Placing an order with the XpressPrint application.
