A New Digital Frame- With a Phone Number
Seems not a day goes by without some kind of interesting innovation in the digital frame market and a recent announcement from Parrot kept that steak alive. The company said it would soon begin shipping a digital frame with its own cellphone number through a European mobile carrier at the end of this year.
Parrot’s new DF7700’s comes with a built-in SIM card that allows the frame to accept digital photos via MMS from mobile phones. The frame also features Bluetooth connectivity, a USB port and an SD memory card slot. According to Parrot, the initial rollout will be through French mobile carrier Bouygues Telecom, for $269 (US).
The frame also features a 7-inch screen with 720 x 480 screen resolution, 512MB of internal memory, automatic image rotation and a built-in light sensor that adjusts the LCD’s brightness as room lighting changes.
