capabilities, Samsung's new digital photo frames provide users with an elegant

to enhance their photo-viewing experiences by playing MP3 files as background
music for photo slideshows; in addition the V-series also provides users with
Wi-Fi capabilities. Those with an abundance of images will embrace the
H-Series frames that offer 7" and 8" screen sizes as well as 1G of built-in
memory - allowing the user to showcase up to 3,000 photos.

Canadian consumers," said Ronald Hulse, Vice President Sales & Marketing, IT
