Cell Phones Compatible With PictBridgeby Daniel Fox
PictBridge printers allow you to print a photograph taken by your digital camera without the need for a computer to facilitate the process. A PictBridge-compatible camera connects to a PictBridge-compatible printer, and prints images taken directly from the digital camera. As many owners use a cell phone in place of a digital camera, a phone that is compatible with PictBridge offers the same advantage of printing directly from the phone without needing to connect or transfer the photos to a computer first.
