PRESS RELEASE: Mustek Digital Photo Frame Doubles as Alarm Clock
New PF-E700 Features Seven-inch Photo Display Plus Alarm Clock, Indoor Temperature Gauge, & Snooze
IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 7 -- Mustek, a leader in consumer electronics for the digital lifestyle, is introducing the ultimate bedside companion, the new PF-E700. Designed to save desk space by integrating several functions into one, the PF-E700 is a versatile convergence of digital photo frame with built-in alarm clock, calendar, indoor temperature gauge and MP3 player.
The PF-E700 offers a high-resolution (480x234), seven-inch TFT color LCD to view photos from most available memory cards (SD/SDHC/MMC/MS-Pro DUO/CF), as well as videos in AVI and M-JPEG formats. Unlike similar convergence devices, the PF-E700 does not crowd its dedicated photo screen with time, calendar or temperature digits; instead that illuminated information is reversely displayed on the bottom of the player to maximize space for photography appreciation. Photos can be viewed individually or in auto slide show mode with multiple transitions on the full screen or in split windows.
The dual "snooze" alarm clock helps wake the user up alert and aware of the time, temperature and date. The backlight can be selected as continuous, an important advantage in early morning darkness.
In addition to reading photos from memory cards, the PF-E700 has a fast USB 2.0 port for USB thumb drives or connecting to a PC.
The Mustek PF-E700 is expected to ship in April 2008 with an MSRP of $149.99 (U.S). It comes with a standard 12V adaptor, user manual and wireless remote control.
