Pharmacy chain CVS Corp. Thursday said it would offer the world's first disposable digital camera with a bright color viewing screen that allows consumers to instantly preview pictures.
The new camera, priced at $19.99, marks an evolution from the first generation of one-time use digital cameras sold in U.S. retail chains, including Walgreen's, for the past year. This older line had no ability to instantly review photos.
It also marks the in-roads digital cameras are making against older types of analog cameras in the market for cameras at the most basic level.
Woonsocket, Rhode Island-based CVS said its new one-time use camera would be sold under the CVS brand exclusively in its own stories. One thousand CVS outlets now carry the cameras and 3,000 will carry it by the end of the year.
