Toshiba Tries to Make Digital Photo Frames Cool

Since their arrival on the tech scene, consumer electronic companies have been trying to sell the public on digital picture frames -- trying to convince how cool they really are. And despite numerous attempts and feature additions including being able to send photos wirelessly or the ability to create slideshows, we still haven't jumped on the digital photo frame album. Toshiba is hoping to finally make a decidedly lame product somewhat cool.


Toshiba has partnered with FrameChannel to create their Digital Media Frames. For those of you that may not be familiar with FrameChannel it's a free service that lets people manage photos through their digital frames as well as stream content such as news, weather, and horoscopes just to name a few. The partnership combines FrameChannel 400 channels of content with Toshiba's high resolution frames to create an information center that displays all your personal pictures.

The frame is available in black and white. The black version of the frame is available in 8-inches and 10-inches while the white is only comes in white. The 8-inchers are retailing at $179.00 and the 10-inch $229.00. I'm not sure if this will put the digital frame at the cool kids' table but this is a start.
