Video: Kodak’s Consumer OLED Photo Frame Is A World First

Kodak announced its impressive, but expensive, world’s first consumer-level OLED photo frame back on September 17th. We now have a couple of video reviews of this little marvel (one from CNET below), giving us a better look at the 7.6-inch OLED display and its touch-sensitive border.

CNET calls the high-end panel a “vanity piece” with its $1000 price tag. For this you get 800 x 480 pixel resolution with a 30,000:1 contrast ratio. The digital photo frame packs plenty of connectivity with WiFi access to your PC, as well as Flickr and Kodak’s photo sharing service, a USB and miniUSB port, an SD card slot as well as audio-in and out for video playback.

Mac users seem to have been overlooked a little; being limited to USB, SD and Kodak’s online gallery, but you can still get plenty of functionality out of these options.

Note that there is no remote and only the “frame around the frame” is touch sensitive, not the screen itself – though the navigation still looks pretty slick. It comes with 2GB of internal memory which can be expanded via your choice of SD card capacities.

For another video that got in a little earlier than CNET, check out The Gadget Show. If Kodak had managed to curve the display like AUO, then maybe the price would be justified.

UPDATE:
Kodak’s OLED frame is now available through Amazon.com for $883.69.
