Samsung Unveils AMOLED Photo Frame

Last week Kodak sold its OLED business to LG and with the sale of the business many OLED products were also transferred to LG. One of them being the famous Kodak OLED digital photo frame. No one knows when the production of those frames would start again.
But the good news is that Samsung is set to beat all OLED manufacturers with the launch of it’s ‘AMOLED Photo Frame.’

AMOLED is basically ‘Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode.’ Samsung will unveil it’s 700Z Digital Photo Frame at CES 2010 in Las Vegas. CES 2010 is the Consumer Electronics Trade Show promoted by Consumer Electronics Association. At this trade show many technology vendors like Samsung, Microsoft, Panasonic, Sony etc. will be displaying their products.

The Samsung AMOLED digital photo frame offers a 7 inch display, 4GB internal memory, Bluetooth with video support and allows transfer of photos from a cell phone. Even though the AMOLED technology is sustainable and green it is still very expensive. For this product to be mass marketed and adopted by everyday consumers the prices need to be lowered and the technology needs to be made more accessible. Currently, OLED digital photo frames sell or $1000 and more.
