Kodak digital photo frames
Kodak on Thursday announced the addition of three digital photo frames, the M820, M1020 and P720 , to its range of products. The P720 is a standard 7-inch digital still photo frame, while the 8-inch M820 and 10-inch M1020 are from Kodak's Multimedia line. All three feature Kodak's new back-lit Quick Touch Border, which allows for navigating through files by touching the frame, leaving the display free of smudges.
In addition to USB drive compatibility, the P720 features a dedicated SD card slot as well as a multi-card slot that can take SD, MMC, xD and MS memory cards. The M-series frames use a 16:9 aspect ratio and support MPEG 1 and 4 video files along with MP3 audio. The 128MB built-in memory is bolstered by two memory card slots supporting CF, SD, MMC, xD and MS designs.
Kodak's EasyShare software is included for easier transfer of photos and files from a Mac or PC. To help visually integrate each frame into a home, Kodak provides a Cranberry Red and Silver frame surround with each of its new products, and offers an additional four frames.
The P720 retails for $120, the M820 costs $180, while the M1020 is $230. All are expected to ship by April 16.
