Leave it to Polariod to not support iPhones!,
This review is from: Polaroid GL10 Instant 3X4 Mobile Printer for Digital Cameras and Smart Camera Phones (Camera)
Are they crazy, or just plain silly? Why would you possibly make a product like this that doesn't work with the World's number one selliing mobile phone? Leave it up to a company that the digital age has completely passed by to do this. They could have made it work ONLY on the iPhone and it would have soled twice as many. Good grief.

It is not that Polaroid doesn't want to work with the Iphone... it's that Apple doesn't want anything that isn't made by Apple to work with the Iphone. Polaroid doesn't have access to the technology that is proprietary to Apple to make things work with the Iphone. Apple doesn't make it available to other companies because they don't want to lose any sales of any accessories to their Iphones. Don't blame Polaroid and downgrade their product for something that is the fault of your precious APPLE!

A jailbroken iphone with the airblue sharing app will allow you to print via bluetooth.

Apple crippled the iPhone's bluetooth, so there's nothing wrong with the printer (evident by what Jerem said: if you jailbreak it, it works just fine). It's the phone. Most bluetooth devices (besides headsets) don't work with the iPhone because the bluetooth is pretty much disabled. I have an iPhone and I love it, but Apple makes a lot of bad decisions for their consumers.
I do agree that it would be worth it to Polaroid to work with Apple and make something iPhone compatible, but I don't think that would happen. It wouldn't benefit Apple much, so I can't see Apple doing it.

Like Apple would allow that. If you buy an iPhone you should do so knowing that apple only wants you to use their approved apps and proprietary devices. If you want choice, get an android device.
