Android on a … 3D photo frame!
Yes, you’ve read the title correctly. We’ve seen Android on a various devices – mobile phones, tablets, personal media players, TV sets and now we will see it on a digital photo frame. Nikon has recently presented the new NF300i 2D/3D digital photo frame, which will be running on Android 2.1 OS out of the box. The most interesting features of the photo frame include:
- 7.2-inch display
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g network support
- LAN input – great if you still don’t have a wireless router
- 4GB internal memory
- Support for JPEG, MPO p, MPEG4 (H.264), AAC and MP3 file formats
NF300i also lets you enjoy a glasses-free 3D experience on its screen and offers many interesting things that any other Android-based device could offer – live weather forecast, built-in RSS reader, alarm clock, e-mail support and many other. However still there is no information whether there will be Android Market support or not, but let’s hope that Nikon won’t disappoint us.
