Mustek PF-i700 Photo Frame
Mustek plans to stand out at the Consumer Electronics Show with the introduction of the PF-i700, its latest-generation digital photo frame. The new 7-inch display will be one of the few to find room for an iPod dock; cradling the Apple player in the frame will not only let users display images from the iPod but also play music and movies courtesy of stereo speakers and a minijack for outputting sound to headphones or speakers. The setup reportedly eliminates the excess cabling of a TV setup while also providing the portability of a photo viewer.
Users will also have the choice of playing content directly from a Memory Stick, SD card, or xD card and their related formats. This includes both MPEG standards and XviD, Mustek says. A USB port will also help for transferring images direcly or for attaching larger removable storage. The i700 should work in both horizontal (landscape) and vertical (portrait) modes and will begin shipping in March for $130. via Gearlog]
