PRESS RELEASE: Mustek Merges iPod Experience with Digital Photo Frame
IRVINE, CA, Dec. 21 -- Addressing the needs of photo, music and movie buffs, Mustek will launch at CES 2008 the PF-i700, a brilliant color 7-inch digital photo frame with an integrated Apple iPod docking station that plays iPod files, in addition to those stored on popular memory card formats.
"For years consumers have stored their music libraries on iPods and now they're saving their favorite photos, TV shows, video clips and movies there, too," explained David Ficken, National Sales & Marketing Manager for Mustek. "The new PF-i700 has the expanded multimedia capabilities to play all these digital entertainment options on one screen without the cable clutter, redefining today's iPod experience."
Nearly three times the size of the iPod's screen, the PF-i700's 7-inch TFT LCD panel boasts 480x234 resolution and a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio ideal for playback of movies in MPEG format, Xvid and motion-JPEG formats. The panel is mounted within a high-gloss black bezel with the contemporary aesthetics to fit into any home, office or dorm room. Accentuating the "wow factor" is the panel's ability to display in both portrait and landscape positions. A removable stand design allows for wall mounting.
To assure audio richness worthy of the iPod, the PF- i700 features stereo speakers plus a headphone jack. It also incorporates a card reader for SD, xD, MMC, MemoryStick and MemoryStick Pro cards and a USB 2.0 port for thumb drives or connecting to a PC.
The Mustek PF-i700 is expected to be available in March 2008 with an MSRP of $129.99 (U.S).
