Pandigital is entering the kitchen with the “industry’s first” HDTV, digital cookbook, and digital photo frame device. Pandigital wants to make traditional, paper-bound cookbooks a thing of the past. The device, called the Kitchen HDTV/Digital Cookbook/Digital Photo Frame, comes with pre-loaded recipes and sports a 1280 x 720 “HD-ready” resolution, which should make it the perfect cooking gadget for the Chef Boyardee in you. It features:
* 15-inch LCD screen
* 512MB of internal memory – enough to hold 3,200 pages of recipes/photos
* ATSC/NTSC, composite, S-Video, YPbPr, and HDMI support
* Calendar and clock function
* Built-in 6-in-1 card reader: SD, XD, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro/Duo, Compact Flash, and MultiMediaCard
* Google Picassa support – download photos from Picassa photo-sharing service
* Support file types: JPEG, Motion JPEG, MPEG 1, MPEG 4, and AVI
* Interchangeable faceplates to match various kitchen decors: brushed stainless, black, and white
The Kitchen HDTV/Digital Cookbook/Digital Photo Frame is stain-proof, thanks to its sealed glass. It comes included with a counter top stand and an under cabinet mount – for those without enough counter top real estate.
The Pandigital Kitchen HDTV/Digital Cookbook/Digital Photo Frame will be available beginning in June for $399.99.
