[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> David: Hi, I'm David Carnoy, Executive Editor for CNET.com and I'm here to give you a video tour of Kodak's OLED Wireless Frame; this is the first OLED digital photo frame, it's rather small at 7.6 inches diagonally and it's also rather expensive at right around $1,000. The frame itself is beautifully designed it is very thin one thing about these digital photo frames is they do have a stand or a back so you lose a little bit of the thinness factor. Besides the thin factor the other key factor we see with OLED displays is their brilliant color, the image itself is also very sharp but it's not necessarily razor sharp because this isn't a super high resolution frame this is only 800 by 480. It is wireless so you can not only sync up with your PC and transfer images from your PC right to the frame but you can also connect to Kodak's Gallery Service online as well as Flicker or the Frame Channel. Mac users won't get some of the functionality but you can still connect via the wireless to the Kodak gallery online, but you can't use your Mac to transfer photos to the frame. This is a touch-panel model, that means that the frame around the frame is touch-sensitive and you control the interface by touching buttons on the side of the frame there is no remote that comes with this. It comes with 2GB of internal memory but of course you can add a whole lot more pictures by simply adding a higher capacity SD card to the mix. You can play music in the background as you're playing a slideshow; this frame also plays back video files, around back there is an audio input as well as an audio output. You also get a USB connector for thumb drives as well as a mini USB connector; again, it is a little bit expensive it would be a vanity piece, there is a lot of functionality here and we assume we'll see a lot more of these frames in the future. I'm David Carnoy and it's the Kodak Wireless OLED Frame. ^E00:02:08
