Sony's Swarovski crystal-studded photo frames

For some reason, Austrian luxury brand Swarovski loves cooperating with Japanese electronics makers. Now Sony has announced [JP] a total of six 7-inch digital photo frames for the Japanese market, two of which (the DPF-D75 (WZ) in white and the DPF-D75 (BQ) in black) were jointly designed with the Austrians.

Spec-wise, the two Swarovski models feature WVGA (800×480) resolution, Sony’s TruBlack Technology, a 16:10 aspect ratio, slideshow function, JPEG/BMP/TIFF/RAW file support, 256 of internal memory (enough for about 500 pictures), an SDHC/SD slot, a memory stick (duo) slot, and a USB port.

Sony says they designed they used so-called CRYSTALLIZED-Swarovski Elements to decorate the front panel, stones with a more beautiful sparkle than ordinary Swarovski crystals.

The Japan-only Swarovski photo frames will go on sale on March 5. Prices: $220 for the white model and $200 for the black model. If you’re interested but live outside Japan, ask Geek Stuff 4U if they can get one for you.
