Have you ever wanted to e-mail a photo directly to a picture frame? No? Well, now you can anyway. Pandigital has announced a digital photo frame that will let you do just that: the Photo Mail LED Digital Photo Frame.
And you can get your photo there wirelessly via AT&T.
The digital frame exhibits photos on its 8-inch LED-backlit display in 800 x 600 resolution. Users have 1 GB of space for storing their memories. That's approximately up to 6,400 images. It also supports AVI video clips and MP3 music files.
Owners also have a few editing options (but only a few). Those features include rotation, resizing, brightness and color adjustment.
The Photo Mail frame comes with the AT&T cellular connection with an associated email account already set up, so it's should be really simple. The first 300 e-mailed pictures are free. After that, you'll have the choice between paying per photo (price isn't clear yet) or using the 6-in-1 card reader (free). (It supports Compact Flash, SC, XD, MS, MSPro and MMC.)
It will start shipping later this year (no exact date now) with an MSRP of $149.99. (That includes the first 300 e-mails.)
While I'm still not big on the digital photo frames (at least not at the prices they currently run for), it is interesting to see companies play with them and think outside-the-box when it comes to such a simple product.
