Casio “digital art” photo frame prototypes promise passive entertainment

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.

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.

Sony S-Frame DPP-F700 photo frame with printer getting January US launch [Video]

Remember the Sony S-Frame DPP-F700 combination digital photo frame and printer?  Announced late last month over in Singapore, the 7-inch WVGA display has just seen its official US launch, and it's expected to arrive in stores in January for around $200.  As well as displaying images on-screen - loaded either via USB or on a memory card, but frustratingly not wirelessly - the DPP-F700 can spit out 4 x 6-inch glossy prints for your mother-in-law to take away.
