Kodak announces OLED digital photo frame

Kodak has introduced the world's first consumer-available wireless picture frame featuring Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) technology.

As well as OLED tech, the frame will also be wireless with built-in Wi-Fi enabling access to pictures, videos and music stored on PCs, as well as connectivity to online photo and video sharing sites and internet content portals for news, weather, sports and more.

The frame offers an ultra-thin, 7.6-inch diagonal digital panel with 800 x 480 resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio and a wide 180-degree viewing angle. There's also Kodak "Image Science", which claims to optimise image quality for display on OLED panels.

The frame requires no backlighting, and has an ambient light sensor that adjusts the display brightness based on the surrounding light.

Complete with speakers, the frame is capable of video-playback, it boasts 30,000:1 contrast ratio, gets 2GB of built-in internal memory, built-in card reader and a USB port.

The KODAK OLED Wireless Frame will go on sale for £599.99 (corrected from £499.99) in the run-up to Christmas 2008, but will be on display at the Photokina event, that Pocket-lint is attending, so we'll bring you more from there.
