Motorola's latest Moto Mod is a Polaroid printer for your phone

These attachments, dubbed Moto Mods, expand the functionality of a phone.

The Insta-Share Printer will be available for $199.99 in the U.S. at Verizon and Motorola.com beginning November 17, and will be available for pre-order at Best Buy, B&H, Fry's and Newegg on December 6, with general availability starting December 13.

Do you remember Polaroids?

Last month news about an unannounced moto mod called Polaroid Insta-Share Printer made headlines.

The technology is a little more advanced here. Just flip the back of the Mod open like in the image below and load it with the Zero-Ink (ZINK) paper. In this case, the Polaroid Insta-Share Printer, which was announced earlier this year, allows you to capture a photo and print it on 2 x 3-inch ZINK paper. They have an adhesive back so you can stick them to your fridge. You're not limited to printing photos straight from your camera app either. "Shoot pics in the moment or select your fave shots on social media, add fun filters, then print - right from your phone". Users can print photos from Facebook, Instagram, as well as Google Photos. Or, you could just buy the standalone Polaroid ZIP Mobile Printer for half the cost. Let us know down in the comments.
