Parrot Specchio WiFi/NFC frame: there’s a photo in there among the glare

Parrot Specchio WiFi/NFC frame: there’s a photo in there among the glare

When we first saw Parrot's Specchio digital photo frame, designed by Martin Szekely, it looked to be a promising concept: wireless image transfer, slick appearance, what's not to like, eh?  But this live image of the Specchio in action throws it into a whole new light - or, more accurately, it reflects a whole lot of light from the semi-mirrored glass front-panel and completely washes out the image.

Parrot Boombox review – Who knew Parrot could squawk this loud?

Parrot Boombox review – Who knew Parrot could squawk this loud?

Parrot is taking a venture off the beaten trail with this little beauty. Can’t seem to find a spot for it on the dash of your car? Good, because it doesn’t go there. The Parrot “Boombox” is Parrot’s first entry into the vast and competitive world of in-home speaker stations. Let us all hope that this is only the beginning of Parrot’s fight into the home stereo market.

The Parrot Boombox is a Bluetooth based speaker system that will link to your Bluetooth 2.0 cell phone, MP3 player or even your laptop. It truly fills the room with all of those songs that were so longing to be freed from the mono speaker, low quality sound that a lot of devices deliver.

Parrot DF7700 MMS digital photo frame

Parrot DF7700 MMS digital photo frame

Can I haz cheeseburger now?! Alright that photo is a little creepier, even creepier is the fact that this digital photo frame basically acts like a phone, and can receive, and then displays, MMS messages from anyone. It has a SIM card and everything.

There are also USB and SD card slots for those not wishing to display the public indecency that was captured on their phone the night prior. There are also position and light sensors to help keep the image on display, as shameful as it may be, viewable.

CES 2007: Parrot’s 7-incher Bluetooth picture frame

CES 2007: Parrot’s 7-incher Bluetooth picture frame

The 3.5-inch Bluetooth picture frame was a good start, but the bigger and more colorful 7-inch, 720x480 pixel screens is much better! The new frame has 128MB of internal memory, which holds about 500 pictures. Also, it’s got a sensor that automatically adjusts the screen brightness depending the lighting in the room.

Overall, the frame looks great in tan leather or black finishes. You’ll be able to pick these up for $249 sometime in the spring.
