With a formal announcement coming at CES 2008 in January, the upcoming Mustek PF-i700 combines a stylish digital photo frame with a full-function iPod multimedia dock. Mustek’s new 7″ TFT digital frame will feature an integrated iPod dock, stereo speakers and 480 x 234 resolution with a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. Users will be able to enjoy digital images or videos on the sleek modern frame while music from their iPods sets the mood. Nice, right? Beyond iPod support, the PF-i700 will support SD, xD, MMC, MemoryStick and MemoryStick Pro cards, and even packs a USB 2.0 port that will accept and display content from flash drives. With a feature-set this inclusive, one would expect a hefty price tag to go along with it. An MSRP of $129.99 however, will make this all-in-one multimedia display very accessible once released in March 2008. Any takers?
