D-LINK® internet photo frame wins engadget’s 4th annual ’SWITCHIE’ award
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif.— “Most digital photo frames continue to be islands, but not the D-Link Internet Photo Frame.”
With those words, the experts at Engadget.com, the popular website for the gadget world, bestowed its annual “Switchie” award to D-Link’s Internet Photo Frame (DSM-210) in the category of “Getting the Picture Across.”
“In addition to slurping down photos from its own dedicated website, the frame can pull photos from many popular Web services, such as Flickr and Facebook,” said the judges.
Engadget’s fourth annual Saluting Wares Improving Technology’s Contribution to Humanity honors (Switchies) were awarded during the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The D-Link® Internet Photo Frame was the only winner in its category.
Through D-Link’s partnership with FrameChannel, the frame is easily managed using an intuitive website (www.internetphotoframe.com), where users can upload and organize photos for display as well as choose streams of content such as weather, news, trivia and more using popular Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds.
With built-in wired and wireless connectivity, the D-Link frame gives customers flexibility in where they’d like to display their photos throughout their house. In addition to managing the frame via the Internet, users can simply drag and drop digital photos into photo frames using a “widget” located on the computer desktop, which then automatically displays the photos as a slide show on the photo frame. The widget also allows a user to remotely manage a frame over the Internet using the same drag and drop method, making it the perfect gift for someone who is a novice computer user, letting the giver of the frame remotely manage the photos and content displayed.
Unlike traditional digital photo frames, this next-generation photo frame is designed to enhance the home entertainment experience by allowing users to view their favorite photos easily and conveniently virtually anywhere in the home or over the Internet - providing a high-resolution 10" LCD display connected over a wired or wireless home network.
The DSM-210 features a 16:9 screen and includes an interchangeable black or white frame. It contains slots for USB and common memory cards, and can be networked via an Ethernet connection or Wi-Fi.
Price and Availability
The D-Link DSM-210 is available now through D-Link’s network of retail outlets, value-added resellers, solution providers and distributors, or at the company’s online store, www.dlinkshop.com, for the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $249.99.
