“With the Pandigital Photo Mail Digital Photo Frame, it’s unbelievably simple and affordable to share and enjoy digital images via email to a digital photo frame,” said Dean Finnegan, CEO and founder, Pandigital. “Consumers in Europe are also interested in streamlining the way their devices work with each other – and the Pandigital Photo Mail frame is an excellent example of how devices can improve our lives.”

The new Pandigital Photo Mail Digital Photo Frame is incredibly simple to use. Each frame has its own dedicated email address. Customers can share that address with family and friends so they can send photos directly to the frame from their own email account – whether it’s from a computer or wireless device.

Upon receiving new photos via email, the recipient can quickly accept and view them. In an instant, consumers can enjoy photos taken by friends, family or even themselves, without leaving their home.

KPN provides the transmission of the photos to 32 countries in Europe without roaming charges.

“With the Pandigital Photo Mail Digital Photo Frame, it’s unbelievably simple and affordable to share and enjoy digital images via email to a digital photo frame,”

“Pandigital’s Photo Mail Digital Photo Frame ushers in a new era of how consumers will share and enjoy digital images,” said Kim Bybjerg, Managing Director of KPN, The Netherlands. “Delivering photos to this frame is as easy as sending an email. Paired with KPN’s network, photo sharing becomes a very connected and convenient way to stay close to friends and family.”

High-End Features In New Pandigital Connected Digital Photo Frame

The Pandigital Photo Mail Digital Photo Frame is a full-featured digital photo frame with a large 8-inch back-lit LED display in 800x600 resolution, so photos are crisp and clear. The 4:3 aspect ratio preserves the original format of the photos, ensuring that they are not stretched or cropped. Plus, with a full 1GB of internal memory and Pandigital’s memory optimization mode, consumers can enjoy up to 6400 images on the display.

This new frame can also be loaded with photos in more traditional ways – namely via its 6-in-1 media card reader (Compact Flash, SC, XD, MS, MSPro and MMC) or via a direct connection to a computer or digital camera. Images can be rotated and resized, and brightness and color settings can be changed. The Pandigital Photo Mail Digital Photo Frame also can play back AVI video clips and MP3 music files.

The 8-inch digital photo frame has many additional useful features, such as calendar, clock and alarm functions. Additionally, it can be programmed with specific on/off times so the frame will not use power unnecessarily.

As with all Pandigital digital photo frames, the Pandigital 8-inch Photo Mail Digital Photo Frame was designed to look great in the home or office. It features a real wood frame, photo matting and a glass screen cover. As a result, it blends perfectly with additional frames in the home.

Pricing And Availiability

The Pandigital Photo Mail Digital Photo Frame is affordably priced at a MSRP of €169.99 and will be available at various retailers throughout Europe. The price of the frame includes the ability to receive 300 photos emailed to the frame with no service fee to the customer. Additional photo allotments may be purchased directly from Pandigital: 100 for €11.99, 400 for €39.99 and 700 for €69.99.
