Mustek today unveiled the PF-E700 digital photo frame, a seven-inch TFT LCD that features a built-in alarm clock, indoor temperature gauge, and snooze functions. The display is measured at 480 by 234 pixels, and accepts a wide range of multimedia cards, such as SD, SDHC, MMC, Memory Stick Pro Duo, and Compact Flash. In addition to photos, the PF-E700 can also play MP3 files, and movies that are saved in AVI and MPEG formats. Mustek will ship the frame in April at a price of $150.
Rather than displaying its extra feature information on the main LCD, which normally crowds the screen, a smaller illuminated LCD offers the time and date, as well as temperature information
The frame's backlight can be set to continuous light when the snooze button is pressed, for light in the morning when the room is dark.
