Intouch adds 7-inch frame with web radio support
Intouch has released what it calls the first Internet-capable digital photo frame, the 7-inch IT7150. Apart from its ability to playback photos and videos, the frame can connect to Internet radio stations, weather information and social networking sites thanks to its Wi-Fi connection. It also carries an 800x480 resolution and a touchscreen that brings a virtual QWERTY keyboard.
There is a USB connection and a multi-format memory card slot, letting users upload photos directly onto the frame's 128MB of internal memory. Thanks to a partnership with FrameChannel, users can also sync their online photo collections. Either live Internet radio stations can be tuned into or WEB TV content is supported as well; an RSS reader is built-in for news.
Two 1W speakers and a 3.5mm jack provide audio. An integrated rechargeable battery gives the frame 1.5 hours of life. The frame also has an integrated clock, calendar and alarm.
The IT7150 frame is priced at $230.
