Digital Foci Churns Out Two New OLED Pocket Photo Viewers

Digital Foci Photo Album DeLuxe OLED 2.8 Photo Viewer

Digital Foci is introducing two new photo viewers next week at CES 2008. The Pocket Album DeLuxe OLED 2.8 and Pocket Album OLED 1.5 both belong to a new product line that feature organic light-emitting diodes for display.

OLEDs require far less power because they do not require backlight to function; they are also cheaper to make. But their disadvantage is limited life; they do not last as long as LCDs – 5,000 to 60,000 hours tops. That should be plenty for a functional photo viewer.

The $100 Pocket Album DeLuxe OLED 2.8 photo viewer, above, features a 2.8-inch (320 x 240) Active Matrix OLED screen with a contrast ratio of 10,000:1. It can hold over 3,000 photos in its internal Flash memory.

Digital Foci Photo Album OLED 1.5 Keychain Photo Viewer

The $50 Pocket Album OLED 1.5 digital keychain photo viewer features a 1.5-inch (128 x 128) Passive Matrix OLED screen with a contrast ratio of 1000:1. With 32MB internal flash memory, the Pocket Album OLED 1.5 can hold approximately 120 digital photos.
