Englewood, N.J. — Digital frame maker Smartparts announced its first 15-inch model today.
The frame offers a 1024 by 768 resolution LCD screen with 256MB of internal memory and a card reader.
The unit will be bundled with the firm’s OptiPix Pro software for finding and optimizing images for transferring to the frame. It can also load PowerPoint slides, PDF files and graphic files onto the frame.
The frame can play back MP3 files through built-in speakers and ships with a remote control.
According to the company, Circuit City, Staples and B&H Photo have picked up the model.
More than 112,000 digital picture frames were sold for the week ending May 12, according to The NPD Group’s point of sale data.
The category grossed nearly $12 million that week, beating Black Friday revenue and tying the sales volume of the week before Christmas.
