T-Mobile Cameo Wireless Digital Frame comes with own phone number for $9.99 a month
If you’re one to think that wireless digital frames are great pieces of technology, then I’m sorry to say that you probably won’t go along well with me. I just can’t get myself to like those little contraptions.
However, a new model from T-Mobile has piqued my interest recently, simply because it adds one little function to an otherwise useless object in my eye. The T-Mobile Cameo Wireless Digital Frame is the certain model I’m referring to, and the extra function I mentioned is none other than its ability to support a special phone number. Doesn’t seem like much at first, but it opens up another venue for users to upload photos directly to it.
The T-Mobile Cameo will set users back $99.99 but it doesn’t come with its own number as standard. You have to pay for it, subscription-style, for $9.99 a month. Yet another way to tie customers down to a contract; great job there, T-Mobile.
Other than being a 7-inch, 720 x 480 pixel wireless digital frame, the T-Mobile Cameo supports uploading of photos via e-mail and MMS. To upload via MMS, you have to–you guessed it–send it to the “special” phone number that costs $9.99 to bundle with the frame. They’re even offering an added bonus to those who sign up for a two-year contract. Overall, it’s not exactly a groundbreaking development in the business of digital picture frames, but still a good combination of services for people who would find it interesting.
