Phoenix, AZ, May 04, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Announcing the new division, Peter Thomas, COO for USB Source states “ We saw a huge opening in the marketplace for the next generation of digital picture frames. The current generation of frames has a difficult to understand interface and lacks the basic “drag and drop” functionality most users want. The new models are truly plug and play.”
This is important to both the retailer and the promotional products markets for a number of key reasons.
Last holiday season saw the demand for digital frames quadruple as prices came down. However retailers and distributors had a very high return rate due to the lack of ease of the digital frames operations. Best Buy V.P. of sales Barry Thompson explains” The interface and the user manuals were very difficult to understand for our customer. The customer wanted the technology but found the set-up and use very hard to understand. We expect this new M-logic solution with the LG LCD to solve all of these problems”.
The new USB Source digital frames are available at present for sale to the promotional products industry and are currently being booked for Holiday 2008.
