We keep asking digital photo frame manufacturers to put cellular data connections into their displays, only very few of them seem to listen.  One prospect on the near horizon is the Vizit from Isabella Products, a 10.4-inch 800 x 600 touchscreen that can be left freestanding or wall-mounted, and which uses an integrated GSM/GPRS quadband modem to receive images emailed, shared from an online gallery or sent from a cameraphone.  Having been up for pre-order for a while now, we now know that Vizit will go on sale March 23rd.

Casio “digital art” photo frame prototypes promise passive entertainment

Casio aren't planning to follow Sony down the path of interactive digital photo frames - as Sony have done with their Dash, adding Chumby widget support - but instead see the devices as a passive form of entertainment.  In an interview with Tech-On!, Casio described their intent as turning the digital picture frame into the "third screen", one which can "sensitively adapt to the users' lives and environments."  They've also put together a prototype to show that passive doesn't have to mean passé.

Archos 7 and Archos 8 Home Tablets official: €149 but sluggish CPUs

Archos have officially announced their so-called Home Tablets at CeBIT 2010 this week, and there's good news and bad.  The Archos 7 Home Tablet and the Archos 8 digital photo frame each run Android, just like the Archos 5, but they have sluggish ARM9 processors rather than any of the more speedy SoC's we've seen on other tablets lately.  Archos' trick, though, is in pricing: the two devices are €149 ($203), making them reasonably budget friendly.

Pandigital Photo Mail LED Digital Photo Frame gets 3G image downloads

Late into 2009 we upgraded our criteria for digital photo frames that want to avoid SlashGear scorn.  No longer is WiFi enough, to be taken seriously such displays must offer something more impressive - like integrated 3G - if they want to be lauded.  Happily Pandigital's Photo Mail LED Digital Photo Frame has enough spec-sheet positives to encourage us to overlook that dire name (and the equally dire press shots): it packs an 8-inch 800 x 600 LED-backlit display and AT&T wireless for WiFi-free downloads.

Transgear TGP-701MG digital photo frame uses your cellphone to get online

We give digital photo frames a hard time here at SlashGear; it'll take integrated WiFi just to get you through the door, normally, since we reckon that's a must-have feature these days.  Even more appealing is integrated 3G, and while the TransTechnology Transgear TGP-701MG may not quite manage to make it internal, this 7-inch Japanese photo frame does at least offer a way to get online.

LOOQS MeFrame WiFi photo frame packs Internet Radio, more

While the LOOQS MeeFrame looks, at first glance, like just another digital photo frame - albeit one that sensibly includes WiFI b/g - what makes it moderately interesting is how it fits into the rest of LOOQS' ecosystem.  The company's line-up includes a media storage device - the MeeBox NAS - and a version that integrates a wireless access point - the MeeBox Router - each of which can stream content to the touchscreen MeeFrame; alternatively it can show content from LOOQS' online MeeChannel portal.

DIY Word Clock from old digital photo frame

We reckon this is a mod that could be pretty popular after the holidays, when people wonder what exactly they're going to do with the non-wireless digital photo frames they've been given.  Matt Mets took one look at his and decided it would make a great DIY Word Clock, stepping through slides with the time written out long-hand; a frame that can automatically change the image every sixty seconds would even be able to do all the clock-work for him.
