Kodak 7.6-inch OLED frame
Kodak's 7.6-inch organic LED (LED) digital photo frame introduced back in September is now available for purchase at Amazon, priced at a heady $1,000. The widescreen frame combines a resolution of 800x480 with an HDTV-like 30,000:1 contrast ratio. The new technology also allows a full 180-degree viewing angle both horizontally and vertically.
The photo frame has integrated Wi-Fi capabilities for wireless access to locally-stored photos and videos, or can access Internet-based photo sharing services including Kodak's own Gallery site along with Flickr and FrameChannel. Built-in software will allow users to quickly access news headlines and sports info, among other applications. On-board storage is fixed at 2GB. An SD card slot allows for expansion, and users can connect USB or mini USB devices, as well as external speakers and a microphone to Kodak's OLED frame. [via Compaholics]
