Philips SPF7008 Bluetooth digital photo frame

Philips SPF7008 Bluetooth digital photo framePhilips has launched an 8in digital photo frame that offers Bluetooth connectivity and accepts almost any type of memory card. The Philips SPF7008 can receive photos sent wirelessly from a mobile phone.

The 8in screen has a standard 4:3 aspect ratio and a resolution of 800x600 pixels. It has discreet touch-sensitive controls around the frame's edges, an auto-dimming mode to save energy and a 130-degree viewing angle. As well as initiating slideshow playback direct from a USB memory key or a removable memory card, the photo frame is able to play AVI, WMV and MOV video clips. The frame has a built-in speaker for this purpose. A comprehensive list of memory card formats is supported, from Secure Digital and SDHC to xD Picture Card and Memory Stick and Memory Stick Pro DUO.

The display has a brightness of 250 cdm/2 and a contrast ratio of 300:1. The SPF7008 has an internal memory of 1GB, uses Philips' imagen Pro photo enhancement technology and comes with a RadiantColor feature that seeks to add a "new glow to old memories". It works with Mac OS X as well as Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 PCs and supports Bluetooth V2 (receiver only).

The 8in photo frame is set to go onsale in the UK later this month. Pricing has yet to be announced.
