Polaroid media player

Famously associated with photography, Polaroid is nevertheless pushing hard into the media player realm, demonstrating unnamed 30GB and 80GB models at CES. The 30GB player will have a 2.8-inch screen while the 80GB model will expand to 4.3 inches. Little else is known about the players except that they'll be WiFi-enabled, permitting connections with other Polaroid electronics.

Polaroid is also launching a new photo backup device (presumably the CGA-02540, pictured), which plugs into a computer's USB port and automatically copies all supported image files without prompting. 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.
