Thanks to Erick Nguyen for pointing me to this innovative device from Sanyo which allows you to transfer pictures from SmartMedia or CompactFlash (Type II supported) onto standard CD-R (650MB), these can then be played back on the same device connected to a TV. The reader also supports QuickTime Movie and WAV format. Best of all? No PC required.. it's a self contained device with a remote control. Priced at about US$880.

What a great idea.. it's about time somebody addressed the problem of getting images off flash cards without a PC, and this Sanyo seems to do that job just nicely (especially if it's PC CD-ROM compatible) though I think the price is a little steep.
