Sony's first digital photo frames will be available in March. They're offering three models at a reasonable price, with all the photo frame features that have proved valuable. Sony says the new line takes inspiration from their Cyber-shot cameras and BRAVIA LCD televisions. There's a nice walk-through of the frames at Sony Style.

Here's what the 3 frames feature:

Vibrant 800x480 LCD Display with 15:9 aspect-ratio
Will scale down photos from a file up to 48MB -- easy to go direct camera-to-frame instead of going camera-to-PC-to-frame and having to downsize the files at the PC stage
Auto power setting-- allows you to program when the frame is on
10 slideshow variations + clock and calendar
Remote control
Transfer photos via USB or by inserting memory stick
(Compatible with many memory cards including Memory Stick PRO™, Memory Stick PRO Duo™, SD Memory Card, MMC, Compact Flash, Microdrive®, xD-Picture Card)
Bluetooth compatibility -- purchase Bluetooth adapter separately then you can import images wirelessly from another Bluetooth device (like your mobile phone)
HDMI output -- purchase HDMI cable separately to connect to any compatible HDTV set and display photos

And here's how the 3 frames are different:

Sony S-Frame DPF-900 / $250
9-inch
512MB internal memory
Supports JPEG, TIFF, BMP RAW (SRF, SR2, ARW)
Sony Bionz™ Processor with face detection technology (in-frame photo corrections like focus enhancement, red-eye correction, exposure adjustment) + faster processing

Sony S-Frame DPF-700 / $190
7-inch
512MB internal memory
Supports JPEG, TIFF, BMP RAW (SRF, SR2, ARW)
Sony Bionz™ Processor with face detection technology (in-frame photo corrections like focus enhancement, red-eye correction, exposure adjustment) + faster processing

Sony S-Frame DPF-D70 / $140
7-inch
256MB internal memory
Supports JPEG, RAW (SRF, SR2, ARW)

That's a great idea, James. We're not aware of any digital photo frame offering Flash compatibility but it's probably just a matter of time — and who better than Sony to lead the charge on this stuff. We did however locate some touch screen photo frames from Mustek, so we'll have a look at those. In the meantime, you could create some JPGs of a marketing message to run on the photo frames.

I think Sony should add swf (Flash) files to their frames compatibility. This could offer a new wide variety of uses for the frames. One could use the for advertising in stores or for menu choices at a restaurant... Why not make them touch screen???
