Picture Porter Elite: Portable Photos, Video, Music
It fits in your hand, and it’s much more than a pretty face.
It’s the Picture Porter Elite from Digital Foci, and it’s being billed as a multimedia convergence device. You can listen to MP3s or pull in the nearest FM radio stations with the built-in FM tuner. Video functions include the digital photo album and a video player. You can see MPEGs, WMV9s, and even MJPEGs. You can see all manner of still image formats. And you can even record directly from a TV.
The resolution (320x240) is rather good for such a small screen (3.5 inches). A memory card reader accepts virtually every format. You can also print those beautiful photos directly to a PictBridge-compatible printer. Windows, Mac, or Linux? It doesn’t matter because this device can connect to computers running all three operating systems.
The two models are the same except for their memory capacity and their price tags. The 40GB model goes for US$449, and you can pick up the 80GB model for not much more, US$549.
