Mustek has a pair of new low-cost digital picture frames for those looking for a more futuriffic means of displaying their family photos: the 8-inch PF-B800 and the 7-inch PF-B700 (seen here). Apart from size, they also differ in aspect ratio, with the PF-B700 sporting a potentially head-chopping 480 x 234 display, and its bigger counterpart getting a more traditional 640 x 480 number. Otherwise, the specs on each appear to be in line, with MPEG video playback in addition to JPEG support, slots for SD, MMC, Memory Stick and "other popular memory card formats," a remote control, and a built-in MP3 player and speakers for times when nothing but a sappy slideshow will do. Both are available now, in your choice of black or white frames, retailing for $100 and $180 depending on size.
