T-Mobile has introduced the Cameo digital picture frame that receives pictures over the cellular data network. Plug in the power cord and it’s ready to receive pictures. Give one of these to the grandparents or far-away friends and you can instantly send pictures directly to their frame.
This is a great idea. The thing about digital photos is that they sit around on your computer and you don’t usually print very many of them. You can always email a few to family and friends, but they probably aren’t going to go through the effort of printing them and putting them on the fridge.
Take the grandparents, for example. You could give them a digital photo frame, but then you become the IT support for it. It becomes your responsibility to update the pictures from time to time. If they live far away, that’s not very practical.
With the T-Mobile Cameo, you get a digital picture frame with its own email address. You can send pictures from your home computer or even directly from your camera phone. Very cool.
You could be at the zoo with your kids and snap a great picture. Send it from your phone to the frame. In a matter of minutes, it’s automatically on the frame.
How does it work? The frame essentially has all of the guts of a T-mobile cell phone built into the back of it. It’s just a data interface, it doesn’t make or receive calls. But that’s how it communicates. It uses the T-mobile GSM network to communicate and receive new pictures. Little Miss Techie and Captain Computer got a kick out of coming home to see the pictures we took on our outing on the frame.
The frame costs $100 and then you pay $10 a month for service. For some reason you can’t purchase these on-line from T-Mobile currently, you have to go into a store. I called a T-Mobile retail store and was told that there is NO service activation fee and NO contract…. Just $10 a month.
This is a great gift idea for the far-away relatives, no matter how tech-savvy they are. You just plug the frame in and it’s ready to go.
