Ceiva Unveils 4 Connected Photo Frames at CES 2008

Ceiva Connected Digital Photo Frame

Ceiva’s claim as the world’s only connected digital frame is just not true. A number of newer digital photo frames do that by connecting to the Internet – wireless or otherwise – and updating the photos displayed, even streaming news and weather reports in real time.

But Ceiva claims they invented the connected digital photo frame, so okay, we’ll give it to them (unless somebody disputes that) and listen to their new pitch at CES 2008.

The company’s new line-up, unveiled at the giant fair, includes the CEIVA Pro 190, a 19-incher with 1280×1024 pixels resolution and a price so high they can only whisper it to you at their booth (#35319 in South Hall 4).

The other new photo frames from Ceiva are more affordable: CEIVA Pro 80 at $230, CEIVA Life at $180 and CEIVA Share at $150.

Ceiva’s connected photo frames work with their optional PicturePlan service that allows subscribers to receive new photos every night through a traditional phone line, broadband or wireless home network.
