Pandigital shows off new digital photo frame with picture email service for Europe

Pandigital has some pretty nice digital photo frames that are set apart from the pack by the way in which users can send the things photos. These frames can connect to the internet and using software and someone in a different state or country can send a photo directly to the frame. Pandigital has shown off an even easier way to get content onto one of its frames at IFA 2010.

Pandigital has showing off a new digital frame that will surface in Europe first. The frame is called the Photo Mail Digital Photo Frames and is a next gen frame with wireless connectivity. The frame connects through the KPN M2M Corporate Services wireless network and will ship in Q4 2010.

Once the frame is connected, anyone can take a picture and then email the image to the frame. The user will get a pop up on their frame that says they have photo mail. When they retrieve the photo mail, the image is automatically added to the roster of photos on the frame for viewing. I would bet that Pandigital is working on something similar for the US; the KPN network is only in 32 European countries right now. The frame will sell for €169.99 and has an 8-inch screen and 800x600 resolution with 1GB of memory. The first 300 emailed photos are free and an extra 100 will cost €11.99.
