Picture Porter Elite ships

Digital Foci today began shipping its Picture Porter Elite 40GB and 80GB portable digital photo albums, each featuring a built-in hard drive and memory card reader that could compete with Apple's high-end iPod line. The device features a 3.6-inch LCD allows users to rotate, zoom, pan, view EXIF information, and play picture slideshows in the field. The Picture Porter Elite can connect to a TV to share photos, and supports copying as well as archiving photos directly from any digital camera memory card without the need for cumbersome peripheral attachments or cabling. Picture Porter Elite weights 11 ounces, measures 5.3 x 3.1 x 1.1-inches, and is priced from $450. The device ships with a USB cable, video/audio cables, and earphones. [updated]

Picture Porter Elite functions as a portable video and MP3 player, featuring a built-in microphone for recording on-the-go.

Picture Porter Elite supports the PictBridge standard, which allows the device to print directly to any PictBridge compliant printer without a computer. The gadget also works with all popular media card formats, including CF I/II, MD, MMC, SD Card, Memory Stick, MS PRO, MS Duo, and MS PRO Duo.
