Thanks to reader JRG for pointing us towards this prototype / pre-production product. The Nixvue Digital Album is similar to the Digital Wallet product we've previously reviewed, however it's smaller, features a 10 GB hard disk and has the ability to work standalone (without a PC), via a remote control you can view images on a TV (Video / S-Video) and/or print directly (has a parallel port). This neat little product is certainly interesting and we'll try to bring you more information as it becomes available.
