Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:EK) has introduced the world’s first consumer-available wireless picture frame featuring innovative Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) technology, a Kodak invention that produces exceptionally sharp and vivid image quality. OLED technology generates greater color depth and saturation than other displays, viewed on panels that are substantially thinner, resulting in a sleek, low-profile design.
The new KODAK OLED Wireless Frame also features built-in Wi-Fi technology that expands the user’s experience by enabling access to pictures, videos and music stored on PCs in other rooms, as well as connectivity to online photo and video sharing sites and Internet content portals for news, weather, sports and more.
At the heart of the new KODAK OLED Wireless Frame is an ultra-thin, 7.6-inch diagonal digital panel that produces stunning image detail, when viewed from any angle. The viewing experience is further enhanced by Kodak Perfect Touch technology, which automatically processes images to improve exposure, brightness and color, and KODAK Image Science, which optimizes image quality for display on OLED panels.
The KODAK OLED Wireless Frame requires no backlighting, and incorporates an ambient light sensor that optimizes the viewing experience by adjusting display brightness based on the surrounding light. Kodak has also designed a premium audio system into the frame, providing outstanding sound reproduction when enjoying videos, digital music and online content.
The KODAK OLED Wireless Frame will retail for US $999 (MSRP) and will be available at kodak.com beginning in the 2008 holiday season, with additional online and retail distribution to be announced.

Lenovo has introduced the ThinkPad W700, a 17-inch widescreen mobile workstation
engineered with technologies and innovations to exceed the demands of the most
data and graphics-intensive users. Lenovo brings the industry's first built-in
digitizer and color calibrator to a mobile workstation and combines these innovations
with first-in-market technologies such as new NVIDIA Quadro FX mobile graphics
and supporting the upcoming Intel mobile quad core processor. Other features such
as optional dual hard drives with RAID configurations, up to 8 GB of high speed
DDR3 memory, a range of wireless connectivity options and excellent multimedia
capabilities including an optional Blu-ray DVD burner/player are said to make
the ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation the standard-bearer for power and performance

and color calibrator. Lenovo and Intel collaborated to integrate the color calibrator
and digitizer into the ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation. Designed for digital
content creators and users, the mobile workstation's digitizer helps them
easily configure an image, either mapping it to the entire screen or to an area
defined by the user. High performance users, especially digital photographers,
will benefit from models with the built-in color calibrator. The calibrator automatically
adjusts the display's color in up to half the time of many external calibrators
and with higher accuracy, resulting in the most accurate, true-to-life images
in an integrated package. Together with the upcoming Intel mobile quad core processor,
multimedia designers and animators now have outstanding quad-core processor performance
and true color replication that is critical for realistic digital creations and

traditional disk-writing methods, or users can choose RAID 1 for mirrored data
The mobile workstation includes WiFi wireless connectivity. Additionally, users
can connect to other devices wirelessly using mobile workstation models featuring
Bluetooth and ultra wideband technology. Models supporting WiMAX will be available
later this year.
