Digital Media Storage While on the Road

    July 27, 2006

I love gadgets and I have way too many of them, however, I always love seeing more of what’s out there, regardless of how cool or crazy it is.

Here’s a new device that is designed to help you take you music, images or even GIS data on the road with you. Compatible with Windows and Mac, Picture Porter Elite lets you easily transfer files to and from your computer and between computers with different operating systems through its high-speed USB 2 connection. Bi-directional data transfer lets you copy files directly from any memory card to the Picture Porter Elite hard drive and vice versa.

Picture Porter Elite Features:

– Photo, video and MP3 player

– Large 3.6″ Color LCD screen for viewing pictures and videos

– Built-in card slots for instant photo backup from memory cards

– Memory card format support of CF I/II, MD, MMC, SD Card, Memory Stick, and MS PRO (xD-Picture card, miniSD, RS-MMC, MS Duo, and MS PRO Duo with adapter)

– Bi-directional data transfer that allows direct transfer to and from memory cards

– Output to TV or projector

– Directly print to PictBridge compliant printers

– Archives and backs up files

– Built-in speaker

– Digital audio recorder with built-in mic or line-in input

– Digital video recorder with scheduled recording function

– FM radio tuner with 18 preset channels available

– Image format support for JPEG, TIFF, BMP, GIF, RAW

– Music format support for MP3, WMA, AAC, WAV

– Video format support for MPEG-1, MPEG-4, WMV9, MJPEG

– Hi-Speed USB 2.0 for fast uploads and downloads to and from your computer

– Long-lasting user-replaceable rechargeable Li-Ion battery for up to 4 hours of video and 12 hours of music

– Transfers files between multiple computers running different operating systems

Picture Porter Elite is available August 7, 2006 with pricing starting at $449 (OUCH!). For more information, see the website: PErsonally, for this kind of cash I’d gop for something with a little more functionality like wireless connectivity like the nifty but relatively unknown Nokia 770 Tablet PC (runs on Linux!)
