    The PoGo printers were made to sell initially at £45 with the
    intention of dropping the price later to £37. The problem is, at
    those prices, they weren't selling.

    So now you can buy a PoGo printer for £20 to £25, which can't be
    making any significant profit, and they are still not selling.

    The company that took over the Polaroid brand, stopped the manufacture
    of Polaroid instant film and cameras and produced both the PoGo
    printer and a digital camera with a built-in PoGo printer has now
    suggested that it is going back to making film. I think that tells us
    that its business plan has failed and it hasn't the faintest idea what
    to do next. In the medium and long term, it may be unlikely to
    survive.

    Anyone who buys a PoGo printer is therefore buying for the short term.
    If you really want one, buy one now. And buy plenty of paper/ink
    refills because you may not be able to buy them for very much longer.

    I'm not really interest in doing that. But I do like the way that this
    kind of technology - which seems to be related to the original Polaroid
    instant print technology - renders colours and contrasts.
    Mmm. How long are the prints themselves likely to last?

    That's OK. I quite like small photographs!

    The technology is completely unrelated to to the original Polaroid
    instant print technology. The only Polaroid input is the brand name.


    They should last a long time because the technology is dye
    sublimation, not inkjet.
