Mustek A950PS Photo Frame
Mustek today signaled its contribution to this week's PMA photography expo. Officially titled the AF-A950PS, the new digital photo frame is designed as much for rooms where music and videos are important as the photos themselves. By using NXT-made flat-panel speakers built into the frame, the A950PS can play MP3 audio at relatively high quality without disrupting the look or the size of the device. The 9.5-inch, 800x480 screen also has enough performance behind it to play AVI, Motion JPEG, and XviD videos at full speed.
Loading media on to the A950PS is handled either through a direct USB connection from a computer to the frame's 128MB of internal memory or else by playing files directly from a few common memory card formats, including CompactFlash, most Memory Stick formats, SD, and xD. Mustek will sell the new frame for $250 but does not expect it to become available until May.
