Sony announces a shiny new photo frame just in time to showcase and share all those fun memories from Spring Break. With a refreshing update to its S-Frame® line, Sony throws in a nice little surprise by adding Wi-Fi for the first time. Now you can create an ever-changing show of your favorite pictures and HD videos with Sony’s DPF-WA700 7-inch S-Frame wireless digital photo frame.
Without the help of a PC, the Wi-Fi frame lets consumers download photos into the device to display their favorite memories. You can also play AVCHD and MP4 video on the units’ high-resolution LED backlight LCD screen. But the innovative, high-quality features don’t stop there.
Not only will the DPF-WA700 connect to your Wi-Fi network for quick and easy transfer of your photos, it can sync your frame with PlayMemories (available Spring 2012), a network service by Sony that allows users to view their content from various devices, Facebook and your Email so the latest 100 photos from each service can be downloaded into the frame’s internal memory automatically. With 1GB of internal memory, the WA700 can store thousands of images. Digital images can also be loaded onto the frame’s internal memory with several types of media cards, including SD, SDHC, SDXC Memory Card and Memory Stick PRO Duo™.
I personally love that you can listen to your favorite radio stations on the frame’s vTuner Internet Radio. And the sound is pretty impressive thanks to a built-in 360 degree monaural speaker. Perfect background music for all those slideshows you can customize with the variety of display and effects modes at your disposal.
Another great advantage of the Wi-Fi feature is the ability to get the latest weather updates right on your frame from AccuWeather.com. So when those April showers hit, stay inside and do some digital spring cleaning. Don’t keep your favorite pictures hidden away on your computer, put them on display for everyone to see with the new DPF-WA700 wireless digital photo frame available now for about $160 at Sony retail stores and other authorized retailers nationwide.
