Amex intros photo frames
Amex Digital has recently unveiled a pair of its newest products, the SR-7 and SW-7. Both sport 7-inch, 800x480 resolution displays and can display digital photos and play back digital music or video files, with the former offering a radio-controlled clock and indoor thermometer. Both frames have an on-screen calendar that shows the day of the week and a dual-snooze alarm. The SW-7 is also a weather forecast station with barometric pressure trend indicator, humidity sensor, hygrometer and thermometer. It has five connections for wireless RF 433MHz remote sensors with auto scroll.
Either frame has a built-in card reader for CompactFlash, Memory Stick, MMC, SD and xD formats along with a USB port to let users plug in USB flash memory keys or external hard drives. The built-in speakers will play back the audio from AVI, MP3 or MPEG1, MPEG2 or MPEG4 file formats. Only JPG images can be displayed on the frames.
The SR-7 is available in black or silver and priced at $129, while the SW-7 can be had in black only for $139. A remote control ships with both digital frames.
