When a router is also a photo frame

D-Link DIR-685 comes with the kitchen sink, sorry, an LCD screen

Even for the most hardcore users, you’d think that the ultimate router is one that has a gigabit WAN port and an OLED screen like D-Link’s Xtreme N Duo DIR-855.

Well, the company has just topped that by coming up with a router that also acts as a digital photo frame, as well as a network attached storage (NAS) device. Bar the kitchen sink, the new Xtreme N DIR-685 probably has almost all the features in a consumer router.

D-Link Singapore has just said that the S$399 “desktop-design” router will debut at the Comex computer show here next month.

So, what do you get for that sky-high price?
