Another popular digital device is the portable digital photo viewer. Many are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, but still hold 50 or more digital photos in memory.
Most models have a USB port to download files, and some accept multiple file types. (JPG and BMP appear to be the most common.) A few even come with sliding or hinged covers over the LCD screen. But the best feature of these miniature photo viewers is price: "Keychain" models start at less than $20. Slip one in your pocket or purse, and you can share your latest photos without worry.
And don't worry about running out of power. The small LCD screens on these photo viewers don't use a lot of juice, so they often last for 6 hours of viewing or more.
