The Boom Boom is a “multifunctional digital photo frame with speaker stand.” Kinda looks like an old school iMac
The odd looking device, pictured above, made an appearance on the FCC today. Known as the…wait for it…Boom Boom, the device is described as a multifunctional digital photo frame with speaker stand.
The Boom Boom features a 8” screen with a 800 x 600 resolution. The device features 1GB of internal storage, with external storage support provided by a multi-card reader. The device can display photos and videos, play music, and manage calendar information. You can also connect the Boom Boom to a PC for media streaming and syncing.
The device does seem to be quite large considering that it is basically a photo frame. We do like the design of the device though – it kind of reminds us of the iMac G4.
No word on pricing or availability of the Boom Boom.
We’re just a couple of days away from the apparent launch of Apple’s tablet, but that’s not stopping Thomson. Today, the company passed a tablet of their own through the FCC. Oddly, the device is known as the PoMMeS, and although we don’t know what that acronym stands for, we do know that in France pommes are french fries.
The PoMMeS offers a hodgepodge of features, including VoIP video calling, weather services, web browsing and TV. That feature set either makes the device an underpowered tablet, or a overpowered digital photo frame.
The PoMMeS also has an internal battery with up to 6 hours of juice and WiFi, so you can carry the device along with you. Depending on how TV is actually delivered to the device, the PoMMeS may be a decent solution for watching TV while you walk around your home or office.
There’s no indication what OS the PoMMeS runs, and at this point Thomson’s user manual for the device doesn’t really give us any indication what the UI will look like. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more, but news of this quasi-tablet will certainly be drowned out by other tablets announced on Wednesday.
This 8” digital photo frame from LG packs a ton of features into a sleek package. Known as the F8010P, this device has 2 GB of internal memory, support for SD, MMC, MS memory cards, 802.11 b/g, Bluetooth, and a compact remote control.
The F8010P makes the most out of its WiFi connection, allowing users to download media from Picasa, Flickr, YouTube, FrameIT, Internet radio channels, or your home network. The device also supports media sharing through Windows Media Player 11. You can also send photos to and from the device via Bluetooth – ideal for mobile phone pics.
With support for video and music, the F8010P is really more of a digital media frame than just a photo player.
This uniquely-shaped digital photo frame from China Great-Wall Computer Shenzhen Company made an appearance on the FCC today. Unlike most rectangular digital photo frames, the PF8400 has a wide base that tapers up, creating a slick looking device that somewhat resembles an all-in-one PC. The device features an 8" inch TFT screen with an 800 x 600 resolution.
In addition to core picture frame features, the PF8400 can play music, video and multimedia slideshows. The device can also display calendar data.
The PF8400 has a USB port and SD/MS/MMC card reader. However, the device lacks WiFi, so you’ll be suck uploading photos to the device with external storage. FCC documents show tha the PF8400 will have internal NAND Flash storage, but no indication of capacity is given.
Sure, when you think Motorola you think Droid, but the company also makes a decent line of digital picture frames. This 10.4” model called the LS1000W passed through the FCC today, exposing a host of connectivity and photo-sharing options.
The LS1000W allows you to display content from Picasa, Flickr or RSS feeds. The frame also supports FrameChannel, which allows you to create slideshows for the device online. Photos can be sent and received via email with the LS1000W, as well.
You can also display photos on the LS1000W the old fashioned way with a USB flash drive or SD/MMC card. The frame can also play music and videos from external media, or play WEB Radio music streams.
That’s a lot of functionality for a photo frame. Who knows why Motorola is still in the digital picture frame business, but the LS1000W seems like a decent option.
Kodak passed their PULSE digital picture frame through the FCC today. The PULSE offers a standard suite of features that includes an 8” touchscreen display, WiFi, multicard reader, support for USB drive, and 512 MB of internal memory.
The PULSE also integrates with Kodak’s PULSE online portal (www.kodakpulse.com), which allows users to upload pictures to the web and send pictures to the PULSE via WiFi. Users can also receive pictures from friends and family through the Kodak PULSE portal.
There’s no word on pricing or availability for the PULSE, however the Kodak PULSE portal is already active, so this device should be released soon.
