Digital photo frame vs. portable computer

It is well known that the digital picture frame especially 7inch digital picture frame have a very good market in the past two years. Many people like 7inch digital picture frame with mp3, mp4 as well as internal memory flash functions, although there are also many people who claim that the present DPF have so little functions, what they need a DPF which can work like a computer.

The present DPF already can not meet people's requirements along with the development of this market. So it is a big trend to develop a new kind of DPF.

There are many chipsets used in the present DPF like ZORAN, ESS, SUNPLUS, AMLOGIC, MTK etc. But all of them can only display pictures and play audio and video. None of them can work like a computer to read and edit files, they can only be read but can not edit. For now, there is a new version of 7inch DPF coming onto the market, and the chipset is Linux 2.4 including Abiword (Word), Gnumeric (Excel), Flash, Instant Message, email, media players, Dictionary, PDF Reader, Games, Schedulers/Planner, Paint brush etc. and they can also work with the internet supporting ADSL, WIFI, CDMA, GPRS (available)
