Jobo digital frame goes cordless, not wireless

New 8.4-inch photo display features integrated rechargeable lithium ion battery.


What's the difference between a digital picture frame, err, photo display that's cordless and one that's wireless? Wireless means it's ready to connect to a wireless network, cordless means it doesn't always need a power cord. The Jobo AG 8.4-inch PDJ801 Photo Display is cordless thanks to a built-in rechargeable Li-ion battery, making it more portable than your average outlet-needing digital frame.

Along with the battery you get 1GB of internal memory, card slots for CF, SD, MMC, MS and MS Pro, xD, and a 800x600 resolution with a 500:1 contrast ratio. Price is $179.

Don't need the rechargeable battery and all that storage? For $20 less you can get the PDJ800 that has the same acrylic and metal design, but you get only 128MB of on-frame storage and a plain old AC adapter.

Both will be available at the end of November 2008.
