Kodak Pulse 10-Inch Wi-Fi Digital Frame with Custom e-Mail Address for Immediate Sharing – Review:
A VERY CLEVER DIGITAL FRAME!
I’ve had this for a couple of days now and have to say that Kodak really has a winner on its hands with the Pulse. Kodak has solved the “last mile” problem with photo frames by creating such an easy way to get photos onto the Pulse. After receiving it you create an email address at […] and simply email photos to that address. It takes about three minutes from emailing a photo to the Pulse to when it shows up on it. Let your friends and family know the email address and they can send photos to it too.
Setting up the Pulse is easy and takes about 10 minutes from unboxing it to displaying photos on it. The frame first connects to the internet via your WiFi and then displays an activiation code. You then go to […] and create a user account and email address by keying in this activation code. After that you can start emailing photos to your new email account. In addition you can also have it display photos from your facebook or Kodak Gallery accounts.
The Pulse has worked great for me with both photos emailed to it and from a facebook account. It has all the usual slots in the back so you can run a slideshow off a flashcard too. A nice feature of the Pulse is that you can sort the photos displayed on it based on who emailed them to you. Tapping on a photo shows who sent it, when it was sent and the subject line of the email when it was sent to you.
My one concern with the Pulse is with wireless connectivity. Where we originally wanted to put the Pulse our computers, cellphones, etc., easily get WiFi coverage but for some reason the Pulse can’t. We moved it across the room and it got coverage but it’s strange that it had a problem when other devices didn’t. Other than that, however, the frame has been perfect.
I originally bought this for my mom so all her kids and grandkids can email her photos without her having to be at a computer to view them. But I like it so much I’ve decided to keep it for myself and buy her another. One surprise is that there isn’t a simple way to print the photos from the Pulse. It would be great if you could select one or more pictures and have them sent to Kodak Gallery or some other online site and have them printed. Perphaps they’ll add this feature in a future software update.
I’m very pleased with the Pulse and recommend anyone thinking about a digital photo frame seriously consider it. Good job, Kodak.
