Reader N.L. was kind enough to share his correspondence from earlier this week with Simon Cairns of PNI Digital Media (OTC BB: PNDMF.OB). According to Cairns, one of the PNI's retail partners will soon announce an iPhone application that will allow users to take photos and send them to the retailer for printing. Below is an excerpt from Cairns's e-mail to N.L.:
We’re now in a position to add an iphone app that would live on your iphone and would help consumers take photos and then send that photo to the retailer for printing (in many cases in as little as one hour). Think of it as another “on-ramp” to the retailer’s system that is run by our company. So, what you have written below is very accurate. We will do a co-announcement with one retailer shortly, but exactly when that will be is up to the retailer because they are trying to figure out when is the best day or event to announce that. It should be soon though.
N.L. also speculates that the "new thing" alluded to recently by PNI may be an application similar to the one described above, except for short videos taken with an iPhone.
N.L. also reminded me of PNI's recent ranking by Canadian Business as Canada's fifth fastest-growing company (in terms of revenue growth) over the last five years.
