Dublin, Calif. — Pandigital will ship a combination HDTV/digital frame to dealers in June.
The 15-inch “kitchen frame” comes preloaded with recipes and will be introduced at the International Home & Housewares Show in Chicago next week.
It features a 1,280 by 720 resolution screen with an ATSC/NTSC tuner, S-Video and HDMI inputs.
The $399 frame is sealed with glass to defend against kitchen spills and offers interchangeable faceplates in brushed stainless steel, black and white. It ships with a countertop stand and an under-the-cabinet mount. It is also wall-mountable.
The frame can be operated with touch controls surrounding the panel or with a remote control that can be stowed behind the frame.
The kitchen frame offers 512MB of internal memory, memory card slots, calendar and clock functions, digital music and video playback. It will be bundled with a wireless adapter for accessing images stored on the Picasa Web Albums web site.
