World First OLED Wireless Photo Frame

Kodak's wireless photo frame is the first to use Organic Light Emitting Diodes, the new technology expected to replace LCDs soon.

The 7.6 inch frame sports a 800x480 resolution with a touch-sensitive frame (not the display itself). Utilising AM-OLED technology this crisp display is capable of a 30000:1 white to black contrast ratio, perfect image representation at any angle and visibility in sunlight. As it is wireless you can connect your computer to synchronise and transfer images. Another feature is the ability to connect to the internet on the frame and access Kodak Gallery, Flickr and FrameChannel online.

The photo frame can play video files as well as background sound while viewing slideshows. It has a variety of ports including miniUSB, USB, memory card reader, audio output and a seperate audio input. You can use the USB or memory card reader to add additional storage if you manage to exhaust the 2GB internal storage.

If you believe the death knell has sounded for LCD technology and would like to pick up this next-generation beauty now, you will be dismayed to find it at US$999 on Kodak's website.

It is expected that more OLED announcements will be made at the CES 2009 starting January 8th.
