iRiver Siren Digital Photo Frame


I was at Josh’s house the other day and noticed, quietly, that he has one of those digital photo frames. I mean, he’s cool to begin with, but now I know he’s, like, Fonzie cool. So now I look at iRiver’s new Siren digital photo frame with “Be Like Mike Josh” on my mind. Its 5.6-inch QVGA display, encased in old person-friendly mahogany, should do the trick for most folks. I like to think we speak to the masses here.

But I bet you’ll want to know what type of cards work with Siren, right? Right. No surprises here: SD/MMC/MS/CF. (My favorite is CF; that’s what my digital SLR uses!) Siren has 512MB of built-in memory, or if you’re cool like us, you’ll use the built-in USB 2.0 port. Well, “cool” in the “we’re closet nerds” sense.

The viewing angles ain’t bad either: 130 degrees horizontal and 110 degrees vertical. Too bad iRiver likes to release stuff exclusively for Japan, where Siren will debut next month for around $125. That’s cool, though, since there’s plenty of these things populating your local Wal-Mart’s bargain bin.
