Sony photo frame has built-in printer
Sony will soon release its DPP-F700 photo frame, which also includes a built-in photo printer. The 7-inch screen on the frame sports 800x480 resolution, and there is 1GB of built-in memory. Users can display the current time in a choice of 21 templates. The integrated printer can create 4x6-inch prints at up to 300x300dpi resolution. The prints uses TruFast technology, meaning they are resistant to fingerprint marks, water and discoloration when exposed to light. Photos stored on the frame can be printed in less than one minute.
Before printing, users can rotate, zoom and crop photos. Searching for photos is made easier when using the included remote control. Users also have the option of personalizing photos with more than 30 calendar and layout designs, as well as printing border or borderless ID photos for formal documents.
The photo frame is compatible with Windows and Mac PCs via their USB port, or users can transfer images via the supported Memory Stick, Memory Stick Duo, SD, SDHC, CF, and xD-Picture memory cards.
The DPP-F700 is expected to arrive in stores in November, with an estimated price around the $290 mark. [via SonyInsider]
