“Instantly sharing life’s special moments is what Polaroid’s legacy and heritage are all about, ” said “Our smartphones are always with us and have become an important device consumer’s reach for to capture life’s most memorable moments.
Some photos are uploaded to social networks and shared with others digitally; however, there will always be a need to share and show actual “physical” photos.
