As digital photo frames go, the 8-inch Pro 80 from CEIVA is an otherwise attractive device with built-in Wi-Fi connectivity that can pull pictures down from the company’s photo delivery service, PicturePlan, as well as from connected computers across your home network.
The frame normally sells for $180 but CEIVA is offering special pricing throughout the holidays at $148. PicturePlan service is included for one year, so friends and family can send pictures directly to your frame over the internet. After the first year, the service costs $10 per month or $7 per month if purchased as an annual plan.
For people without wireless networks, the frame also includes a standard phone jack for old-school connectivity so you can safely give this to your grandma and instruct her to sit next to it all day long while waiting for new pictures to show up.
Other features include an 8-inch 640×480 screen, support for most popular memory card formats, and two interchangeable frames (black and wood). While the ability to send photos to the frame via the internet is a great feature, it’d be nice to offer no-cost Flickr and/or Picasa streaming for those of us who can handle setting up that functionality.
