PRESS RELEASE: Pandigital Debuts Affordable 6-inch Digital Photo Frame
Growing line of frames includes new entry-level model with an easy-to-use design that supports internal memory and PC connectivity
LAFAYETTE, Calif., Feb. 22, 2007 -- Pandigital today launched a new digital photo frame that brings a heightened level of performance and usability to the entry level of its line. The new Pandigital 6.0-inch Digital Photo Frame will be available this month at major retailers at a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price of $114.99.

The new Pandigital 6-inch frame (model number PAN-600-B) fills the important entry-level position in Pandigital's popular line of digital photo frames with features typically not found at this price point, such as a 6-in1 memory card reader, internal memory and USB host connectivity. In addition, the new Pandigital's 6-inch Digital Photo Frame is a true 5x7 aspect ratio so it accurately displays traditional photo formats; it is the only one at that size and ratio in the marketplace today.
"Consumers have embraced digital photo frames with advanced features, like integrated memory and PC connectivity, which let them get the most enjoyment from their digital images," said Dean Finnegan, president, Pandigital. "The new Pandigital 6-inch model is ideal for consumers who want a great image in a smaller-sized frame or at a more affordable price."
Pandigital Digital Photo Frames are available at more than 6,000 leading retail storefronts at a variety of retailers, including department stores and mass merchants, in addition to office supply and technology retailers.

Customers can copy photos directly into the frame's internal memory by inserting their flash media into the frame's integrated 6-in-1 media reader (SD, XD, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro/Memory Stick Duo, Compact Flash, MMC). After quickly copying the photos they choose onto the 128MB of internal memory, customers can return the flash media to their digital cameras. In addition, customers can download photos onto the frame by directly connecting it via mini USB to a digital camera or by standard USB to a computer.
In addition, the Pandigital 6-inch Digital Photo Frame boasts a bright, clear screen that vibrantly displays images in both dedicated and slideshow modes.
