The new PanTouch Clear line features a floating-image motif.

In case you're watching the digital-photo frame market, it appears that prices are coming down nicely heading into the spring of 2009. Hitting stores next month, Pandigital's new PanTouch Clear line features an allegedly simplified touch-screen interface and an eye-catching floating-image design for a relatively affordable price.

The PanTouch Clear models come in 7- and 8-inch size frames. They offer 800x600 resolution, a 4:3 aspect ratio, 6-in-1 card reader, and 1 GB of internal memory. They'll be available next month, with the 7-incher listed at $119 and the 8-inch model listed for $139.99. Both models are compatible with Pandigital's $30 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth accessories.

The company has also introduced a new line of budget products that is headlined by a 7-inch photo frame that also has a 4:3 aspect ratio (800x600), but no touch screen; it will carry a list price of $99.99.
