Digital frame doubles as a secondary display
Asus may have figured out a reason to actually purchase one.
Call us eternal optimists, but perhaps companies are starting to figure out that digital photo frames are among the mostof the digital age. In recent months manufacturers seem to have begun trying to add functions that might actually make them worthwhile, whether they've built in a or used them for something like the " ," which displays a picture of the person who's calling.
Asus too seems to understand the concept, as it has introduced a 7-inch LCD frame with a "sub-display" feature that can turn it into a secondary screen to complement the PC's main one, Akihabara News reports. It sounds like an alternative to those that have grafted a second screen onto desktop monitors.
The frame itself has a 800 x 480 resolution, 128MB of memory, and a USB connection. It may be slightly difficult to color-coordinate it with your existing desktop, however, as its finishes seem more appropriate for a nursery: "Blush Pink," "Sky Blue," and "Star Silver."
