Pogue’s Picks of Today’s Digital Photo Frames

SmartParts SP8PRT Digital Photo Frame with Printer

New York Times’ David Pogue writes, “A few years ago, (digital picture frames) were novelty items: small, expensive, with coarse screens. To load pictures onto one, you had to insert your camera’s memory card and fiddle with menus. Today, a lot of those early frames lie in gadget drawers — right beside the speech-recognition headsets.”

But over the years, those frames have dropped in price, grown in pixels and evolved in looks. More intriguingly, some have gained wireless antennas, Web connections and even built-in printers.”

David looks at a number of the present generation of digital frames – EMotion with Bluetooth, Parrot DF7220, Kodak EasyShare EX1011, EStarling Digital Wireless, Momento 100, PanDigital Wi-Fi Picture Frame, and SmartParts SP8PRT, pictured above – and shares with us his impressions.

Read his take on why the ones from Kodak, eStarling, Momento and SmartParts are standouts among the present crop.
