Ceivaâ€™s claim as the worldâ€™s only connected digital frame is just not true. A number of newer digital photo frames do that by connecting to the Internet â€“ wireless or otherwise â€“ 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, weâ€™ll give it to them (unless somebody disputes that) and listen to their new pitch at CES 2008.
The companyâ€™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.
Ceivaâ€™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.
