Just in time for the holiday season aka Christmas, T-Mobile Germany released a quite interesting photo frame which could be a pretty good gift. The "Digitale Bilderrahmen von T-Mobile" (Digital Photo Frame from T-Mobile) includes a GPRS module and a preinstalled SIM card which allows it to receive photos via MMS or Internet upload. Running on Linux, the photo frame measures 20 x 13 cm and features a 7" TFT screen at 800 x 480 pixel. The 100 MB of memory allows to store around 600 photos which can be up to 2 MB/10 megapixel. The frame itself supports JPEG photos only (no videos). Furthermore, the picture frame can be used with SD cards. The photo frame can be ordered contract-less and includes a mobile phone number to where friends and family members can send photos via MMS. Best of all, there are no further charges for the owner of the picture frame.

The Digital Bilderrahmen von T-Mobile is now available online and costs a one time fee of 149.95 Euro only

UPDATE: As expected, T-Mobile Germany's "Digitaler Bilderrahmen" isn't from Parrot but it's designed and manufactured by Huawei. A review will follow soon!

Cheers ~ Arne

This has been out on T-mobile USA for quite some time.  Its called the Cameo here in the states and is only 99.99.  Then it is 9.99 a month here for the same MMS services.

Perfect timing! Just when you posted the comment about the T-Mobile cameo I was visiting T-Mobile's downtown store here in Seattle and found the cameo there as well. :-) However to be a different device. The cameo is from Parrot while I have no clue yet from whom the German picture frame is but both look different. Also I prefer the German business model with a one time fee, even if it might be a little bit more expensive. But monthly fees are sooner or later killing such a service. I think it's smarter to make the money out of the MMS transmission costs instead of monthly fees.

I found this great picture frame with wireless upload!  Best part about is that with the holidays around the corner, they have a coupon where you can get it at a discount.  Go here and upload a photo.  You can also win money if you submit the photo to the contest.  It's pretty funny!
