  • Built-in [Bluetooth] and profiles compatible with [BIP (Basic Imaging Profile)], [OPP (Object Push Profile)], or [BPP (Basic Printing Profile)]. For details on compatible profiles, refer to the user guide of the mobile phone.
  • A built-in camera capable of recording and saving JPEG images.

  • For details on how to use the mobile phone or on printing methods via [Bluetooth] refer to the user guide provided with the mobile phone.
  • For details on how to print wirelessly using [Bluetooth], refer to Printing wirelessly via Bluetooth (SELPHY CP800).

  • The maximum file size that can be transmitted is 2 - 3 MB (varies depending on mobile phone).
