iPods to get closer with cameras, printers?

As more and more digital music players get color screens, companies will be adding more integrated photo capabilities, including the ability to connect directly with cameras and printers, according to Gary Johnson, CEO of PortalPlayer, which makes the chip that powers the hard drive-based iPods.

“There are already plenty of MP3 players on the market, including Apple’s iPod photo, that can show digital photos while playing music,” reports CNET News.com. “But soon, we are likely to see music devices that can download and display pictures directly, without using a computer as a go-between… Johnson was careful not to say whether it will be Apple’s player that does this, though. An Apple representative declined to comment.”
