Nextel and Fujifilm Print Photos Over The Internet
Jun 28, 2005, 3:11 PM by (staff)
Fujifilm today announced that users of their Get the Picture mobile service will be able to send pictures from their cameraphones to Fuji photo printers in over 3000 retail locations. Using a Nextel phone that features MMS, users can upload their photos to Fujifilm's photo sharing website, which costs Nextel subscribers $3 per month after the first month. They can then choose any of those photos for printing at a nearby Ritz Camera, Wolf Camera or Sam's Club from an application on the phone or from the website. Nextel currently has 3 MMS capable phones- the i860 and i275 cameraphones as well as the i265.
why the hell would anyone want to print out pictures from a crappy camera phone. i think this service is a huge waste of time and money.
Thankfully, Nextel has God-honest marketing wizards on staf...
