This is exactly the type of
crap holiday-themed novelty gadget that inspired me to start the Christmas Countdown in the first place. Because the only thing better than a keychain-sized digital photo frame with a miniscule display, is one that looks like Santa which you can only carry around for a couple months out of the year.
Of course the website actually refers to the 1.1 inch LCD screen as “good sized” but since most people wouldn’t even settle for a digital watch with a display that small, I can’t imagine they’d be happy looking at their photos on this thing. The 8MB of internal memory is pretty typical for these types of devices, but since your photos automatically get resized to 96×64 when uploaded, you can probably fit quite a few on. Other features include date and time display, brightness and contrast adjustments as well as a manual or auto slideshow option.
It’s available from Chinavasion for just $15.16, but the price actually gets cheaper the more you buy. So if you grab 200 you’ll save a few bucks and won’t have to worry about Christmas shopping for the next 10 years. (Depending on the size of your family.)
