LOOQS MeeFrame: WiFi photo frame, radio and more

LOOQS MeeFrame

Digital photo frames are becoming more and more popular. And as result they include more and more features which are not related to photo at all. The same can be said about MeeFrame produced by LOOQS. Sure it displays photos from internal 1GB memory as well as from USB stick or SD card. But additionally to that the MeeFrame sports WiFi b/g adapter. So it can show streamed content from Flickr, Picasa and MeeChannel, playback internet radio (thanks to 2W stereo speakers), display RSS feeds and photos received via email. Not bad for the digital photo frame, isn’t?

The LOOQS MeeFrame has 8″ touchscreen display with 800×600 resolution. So, you won’t spend you time to adopt photos to display on full screen. Touchscreen offers easy and clear way to configure and control device. Additionally the MeeFrame can be used together with other LOOQS products – the MeeBox NAS and MeeBox Router.

The LOOQS MeeFrame will be demonstrated at CES in January 2010. I suspect after that we’ll know about its price and date of availability.

The Multi-function Radio & Thermometer Digital Photo Frame


AMEX announced its two new digital photo frames – SR-7 and SW-7. Both of them have 7 inches TFT color LCD with resolution 800×480 and allow to display your photos from USB memory stick or MS/MMC/SD/XD/CF card. Additionally SR-7 has built-in indoor thermometer, radio controlled clock, dual snooze alarm and calendar and SW-7 – weather forecast, built-in RF 433MHz wireless thermometer / hygrometer
which can be linked with up to 5 remote sensors with auto scroll, display the sunrise / sunset, moonrise / moonset time and sun moon location display according to defined home location. This is a very useful functionality in my opinion.

The AMEX digital photo frames SR-7 and SW-7 will be available soon at expected price $129.00 and $139.00 respectively.
