Take a picture, it lasts longer…


T-mobile is certainly doing its part lately to turn around the stigma that its slow to the punch with competitive products. No, I’m not talking about the G1 and normally I would link an article here but seriously, just keep scrolling down the page. I’m not talking about Blackberry Javelin, or the Blackberry Pearl 8220 Kickstart with the multiple names I just love saying or even the Shadow II, the future follow up to quite possibly one of my least favorite devices ever sold.

No no ladies and gents, we give you, the T-mobile picture frame, currently dubbed the “Cameo.” Love the name. For $100 dollars or 73.9645 Euros as the dollar continues to slide, you will be able to purchase this picture frame which includes its own sim card and a brand new phone number for MMS messaging pictures from anywhere you are, to anywhere the Cameo is. At your home or at your office, just MMS yourself the images you want to preserve most. Finally!

For $10 a month, you can shoot over as many pics as 64mb of onboard memory will hold. Think of how many pictures you can get of the kids with the Grandparents on there! When you are no longer having fun wirelessly messaging (seriously when you would get bored with that?), you are also offered a mini-USB port plus slots for sd cards to upload pictures manually, you know the OLD fashioned way. That just takes the fun out of doing out of this in my opinion and fun with the “cameo” is where its at.

Can I just point out a flaw in the picture up with this post? The picture in the frame of the phone on the left has no trees, on the right trees. No word on if trees are magically added to all your images.

Update: No word on if the $100 purchase price is contract based or full retail pricing. More details to come.

    FYI the dollar is actually gaining strength. The euro has been declining in recent weeks because of this whole financial fiasco.

  • Smoku

    another 10 dollars a month?? not for my pocket lol .. not this at least but its good!!!

  • J

    Ok, so if these pictures automaticly are added to the frame… this could be really amusing.

  • escentz

    Hmm. I’m pretty sure I’m going to get this, just to say I have it. LOL.

    …and I hope the trees are magically added. That would be super. =P

    yo a spy could take advantage of something like this. take pics send them to the frame and delete them from the phone. no traces thats hot.

  • Jessica

    Omg, I thought I was the only one who hated the Shadow. I just sold it on ebay and recouped what I paid for it. YES.

    Great gift to give parents.

    I hope there’s some kind of indicator to let you know when a new photo has been added – watching 100+ photos cycle through the slide show to see if 1 new one has been added would not be too pleasant.

  • Caseybea

    It’s like spying… in reverse.

    “look what I’ve been up to today”.

    And they want me to pay for that? Uh, … no.

  • ruidh

    OK, I am very underwhelmed by the quality of MMS pictures. Every phone I’ve seen downrezzes before sending.

  • Pythagoras

    most phones give you the option to send full res

  • sphilly1616

    this seems silly to me, how about Tmobile bring us some visual voicemail and leave the frames to ikea… lol

  • Hey Sphilly: Stay tuned I promise you that it is in the works. :)

  • SneakerFiend

    well the whole picture was just badly photoshopped meaning that it probably didnt come from t-mo
    i dont think we’re getting the Touch Dual anytime soon and if we are then yay! {-still not going2 buy it-) and this cameo is too small why cant we get something a bit bigger that’ll fit regular frames. Something the size of the T-mo @ Home modem that can serve both as a router and as a picture frame…{-idk who they’re aiming for with this one-)
