The Social Digital Picture Frame from Picwing
Startup Picwing emerged over the weekend with a social photo site and digital picture frame offering. How does this work? You can simply be a member of Picwing, using the site to upload, share and organize your photos. They've coupled this social service with a digital picture frame that has a unique email address that family and friends could email photos to directly. It's taking out the middleman again, otherwise known as the PC. Frames are being produced as we type, but you can preorder for $249 at Picwing.
Now we'll give points for innovation since we know how redundant the digital picture frame market is. While no one has exactly paired a digital picture frame with a social photo site, there are a variety of excellent wireless digital picture frames already out there that can function in much the same way--friends and family can email you photos, you can download news and photos from any number of photo sharing sites, etc. The lackluster part of this offering from Picwing is of course the digital picture frame itself. At a $249, the 7-inch frame is not particularly competitive with established wireless digital frames already on the market (i.e. Kodak). (via TechCrunch)
