Two weeks ago, I've mentioned T-Mobile Germany's new digital picture frame (called "Digitaler Bilderrahmen") which went on sale right before Christmas and this videoview shows you how well it's working. Unfortunately available in Germany only this picture frame, manufactured by Chinese ODM Huawei, isn't just a 7" WVGA picture frame which also supports SD card, no it also features an embedded GSM/GPRS module which allows to receive photos via MMS or Web-upload. The picture frame comes preconfigured with a SIM card and MSISDN and after it is switched on and the picture frame automatically connected it to T-Mobile's GSM network, it's ready to receive photo uploads.

Running on Linux, the photo frame measures 20 x 13 cm and is backed-up by 100 MB of memory which allows to store around 600 photos which can be up to 2 MB or 10 megapixel. The frame itself supports JPEG photos only but unfortunately no videos.

At a one time price of 149 Euro, there is no monthly subscription required but for sure photo uploads costs the price of a simple MMS message. Additionally users can buy credits to upload photos from a Web frontend. In addition to the send or uploaded photo, the picture frame also shows the MMS message text which gives the photo an even more personal note. Photos can run either as a slideshow or can be selected one by one.

The frontend also allows the owner of the picture frame to administrate the device and it's even possible to create closed user groups where only registered MSISDNs can send photos to the picture frame while all others will never make it to the eyes of the owner.
There's nothing else the owner can configure on the picture frame, for instance it's not possible to turn on/off the photo frame automatically but all a user can do is to either switch off the whole device or turn of the screen.

Cheers ~ Arne
