Little else is known about the players except that they'll be WiFi-enabled, permitting connections with other Polaroid electronics.

Inside the unit is a 2.5-inch hard drive, which should store at least 40,000 photos, though perhaps more or less depending on the size and quality. Software support is in place for online photo sharing and printing. The device should be ready in the first quarter of 2007.
