Skyla puts scanning in the frame

A digital picture frame is fine but what do you do if your beloved print is on paper? Scan it in to your PC and then download it. No more. Well, not from the end of April. Buy Skyla’s Memoir FS80 frame and you can cut out the middle stage.

Memoir has 1GB for storing up to 200 prints measuring 10cm x 15cm (4in x 6in) at 600dpi and the display screen is 800 x 600 pixels. It takes CF, SD, MS, MMC and xD cards as well as having a thumb drive port and a mini USB PC connection socket. No WiFi, however. The scanner takes a maximum print size of 10cm x 15cm which is a pity if you always opted for 13cm x 17cm (5in x 7in).

The Memoir FS80 will cost around £178.
