Kodak cuts the cord on latest digital frame

Perfect for sharing?

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

It’s probably been a while since you last sat around the family photo album. But Kodak is trying to bring those days back, with a digital frame that’s supposedly ideal for sharing.

Kodak's S730: has a one-hour battery

The S730’s integrated rechargeable battery pack enables you to bring the frame from its usual shelf-side resting place and into the hands of loved ones, at least according to Kodak.

Ditching a power cable will certainly make the frame easier to move around, but we hope that the required cords haven’t been lost by the time a recharge is required – especially since battery time’s limited to one hour.

The frame’s 1GB memory will hold up to 8000 images, Kodak claimed, and a Quick Touch Border around the edge enables you to cycle through images and frame settings.

One handy feature, a motion sensor, ensures that the frame’s controls always light up when your hand approaches.

Kodak’s EasyShare S730 digital photo frame will be available next month in the UK, priced at £140 ($230/€165). ®
