  • Gadget review: Polaroid PoGo instant digital camera

    The Polaroid PoGo Instant Digital Camera represents a logical evolution for Polaroid. The company may have stopped producing film for its famed instant cameras (the first came out over 60 years ago), but the name lives on, synonymous with photo prints. That the company would integrate its PoGo portable instant printer into a digital camera was almost inevitable.
