There are a million-and-one digital photo frames out there, heck some of them have built into DVB tuners. The IPEVO R7 Digital Frame is a bit different though, this one looks pretty darn fantastic.
The R7 is a rotatable, 7″ photo frame with 800 x 480 resolution. It can also connect to b/g WiFi networks and reads WEP, WPA and WPA2 encryption. It has 512MB of internal RAM, a remote control, USB port for flash drives and all the usual memory card slots except Compact Flash.
It also comes with a nifty bit of software called EyeStage which lets you control and stream photos to your R7 via WiFi from a PC, Mac or iPhone. Using EyeStage you can send photos from RSS feeds, Flickr, Picasa, iPhoto or Facebook or any photos from your computer. Now if it was a 10″ screen and the picture frame rotated automatically for portrait pics, I’d be plonking my money down right now. Still it’s a gorgeous bit of kit. US$149 from IPEVO.
Of course, this unique digital photo frame will let you enjoy and share your images with ease. It can also stream photos from websites and news from RSS feeds. And, it can act like a second display to your computer opening up a world of possibilities both at home and in the office.
