Parrot Photo Viewer aka Digital Frame

If all the previous digital frames we have mentioned are not good enough for you, maybe one produced by Parrot – a popular French company that makes bluetooth products for cars and home use – will make you feel better.

Sadly, it doesn’t feature Wi-Fi and the great RSS detail for Flickr (like this one) that most people admire, but it can still be considered an average digital photo frame.

The Parrot Photo Viewer has a high resolution LCD screen that can display 320 x 234 pixels and up to (the normal) 264k colors. It can only handle images with a .JPEG format which can be good or bad taking in consideration your point of view and how you want to use the digital frame, if you thought about using some cool .gif images instead of normal photos just forget about it.

Since the frame works with bluetooth to receive data, you can be taking photos with your cellphone on the afternoon and placing them on the frame during the night just by making a small transfer, the distance limit is 10 meters for the bluetooth receiver to work.

One feature that other products of the same kind don’t have, is being able to view/use the photo/frame on a landscape or portrait position. Depending on the aspect of the photo some look better in vertical than horizontal position, so it is good to know there are those 2 options. In the storage capacity, it is low with only 32MB, while the processor is a ARM 9 with 64MB of SDRAM .

The Parrot Digital Frame costs (only) $275.

[…] Anyway, as the name suggests this is a keychain which means that it is on the pocket-sized category and can be considered a small version of the other digital frames (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) that we like most. On the other hand, we already reported a similar keychain but lets be honest, this one looks much better on the outside aspect and is 100 times more attractable than the previous one. […]

Digital Photo Frame By King Jim » Coolest Gadgets Says: January 15, 2007 at 1:21 pm

[…] The most recent digital photo frames have come a long way since they were first introduced in the market like 1 or 2 years ago, and it seems like there is a non-stop production of these kind of products which is good because it gives consumers more options to purchase a cool digi frame. With that in mind it is time to present the 9th Digital Frame here at CG – in case you missed the previous 8 here they are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. […]
