Kodak EasyShare Picture Viewer Announced

The last Kodak item for today is the EasyShare Picture Viewer. This stylish device has a 2.5" LCD display, SD/MMC card slot, but only 32MB of onboard memory. You can even place it on Kodak's latest Printer Dock and print directly from the viewer! The Viewer uses a lithium-ion battery which gives it about three hours of battery life. The Viewer will ship in May for around $150.

Credit Card-Sized Device Brings Favorite Memories to Life in the Palm of Your Hand
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 5 -- Eastman Kodak Company is making digital picture sharing more convenient, personal and portable by introducing its new EASYSHARE Picture Viewer, a pocket-sized “digital photo album” that fits in the palm of your hand. Whether showing off recent vacation pictures, priceless memories or snapshots from life’s everyday moments, the Picture Viewer (US$149 MSRP; available beginning in May 2005) is designed for people who love to share favorite pictures on the go.

The EASYSHARE Picture Viewer, approximately the size of a credit card, allows people to keep their favorite digital pictures by their side at all times, and then display one or all for family and friends. With a crystal-clear, 2.5-inch high-resolution display screen, it stores up to 150 favorite digital pictures — simply synchronize with a computer-based picture collection using the included KODAK EASYSHARE software. People can view these favorites, or hundreds more when using the expandable SD/MMC memory card slot. Single view and slideshow features are accessible via the easy-to-use menu and four-way navigation buttons.

“Everyone enjoys sharing pictures, but the handful of prints that people tend to have in their wallet or purse quickly become outdated,” said Mary Hadley, director of worldwide marketing for digital capture at Kodak. “The Picture Viewer lets people carry an up-to-date ‘digital brag book’ containing many of their favorite memories.”
