Digital Photo Album lets you take your pictures with you
Given the myriad options available for digital photo display/storage, I wonder why anyone would want to use a device such as the Digital Photo Album only to show off their digital photos. And little else.
The Digital Photo Album single-mindedly performs just one function – that of being a portable digital album. It has a 7-inch screen and can be directly connected (via USB) to a digital camera, USB drive, external hard drive, or any other USB device to transfer photos to its 4GB internal memory. There is also an option to directly insert and read SD cards, and the internal memory of the album itself is expandable up to 20GB. The device runs on a rechargeable battery that gives 3 hours of continuous playback.
Sadly, there is no option for displaying videos, and neither is there any web connectivity. Which is why it happens to be the “Digital Photo Album” and is not to be confused with its smarter cousin – the “Digital Photo Frame.” Definitely only for the un-geeky among us who also happen to possess around $260 to squander.
