Kodak’s Hot New Picture Frame

by admin on January 11, 2010

I last wrote about digital picture frames here. Slowly but surely they are gaining market share, but of course one barrier is usability.  Like my Mom loves getting pictures of the gran- kids but is not one to set up an electronic picture frame so that its ready for action.  The market needs a digital picture frame where you can just email it pictures. Why hello Kodak Pulse 7-Inch Digital Frame.

This is a great gift for geeks to give to their Moms because you open up the packaging, configure it, re-package it and send it off. Then when you have a new picture of the kiddies, you can email it to her. Awesome.
Mind you, you just don't have to buy it for your Mom. Let's say you have a girlfriend, you could buy it for her and email pictures of you so she is always reminded of the one she loves. Then, if she breaks up with you, you can email pictures of you drinking with the boys and whooping it up and having a good time, just to show that you are over her.
Wait, did I just write that?
Anyhow, Popular Mechanics liked the Kodak Pulse too, it was one of their picks at the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas.

Kodak gave a few of these out at the 09 GUA. They also gave out some 12mpix digital cameras and a few on the HD digital video cameras. I got the HD video camera, by far one of the coolest gadgets I own!

If I give my Mom a Kodak Pulse picture frame does she need internet access (i.e. a DSL line) installed in her house? If not, how does the frame pick up the images? Does she need to be near a WIFI connection? Please provide info or a site that has this info. Thanks.

Beth, the picture is wifi enabled, meaning your Mom has to have wireless internet access in the home. Cheers DJ (prepress pilgrim)
