Samsung today rolled out the SPF-83V, its first photo frame to offer a wireless sync feature. The 8-inch LCD incorporates an 802.11g Wi-Fi connection that will pull photos across the Internet from any site or service with an RSS image feed, such as Flickr; Windows Live members with a photo gallery also have access, Samsung notes. The feature keeps the frame stocked with images regardless of where and when the photos have been uploaded.
Offline photos can be stored either on the built-in 64MB of memory or removable card formats such as CompactFlash, Memory Stick, SD, and xD. Recognition is also built in for music and video from PCs running Windows Media Player; any computer can load files to the device directly through a USB cable, the company adds. Pricing is not listed for the 83V, which should ship today to the US.
