Photo frames are big these days--and they're getting bigger. And by that I mean their size, not just their popularity.

Pandigital has announced it will begin shipping its 15-inch model, the PAN-150, on April 18, for a retail price of $299. Sorry; you can't connect a computer to this monitor-sized LCD, but the frame is a 1024x768 high-resolution display and it does have an integrated 6-in-1 media reader (SD, XD, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro/Memory Stick Duo, Compact Flash, MMC), as well 256MB of internal memory. You can also download photos directly onto the frame by connecting your camera or computer via USB. While there's no built-in DVD player, you can watch MPEG 1, MPEG 4, and AVI video clips, as well as listen to MP3 files via the built-in stereo speakers.

I gave an earlier, 8-inch Pandigital frame decent marks, so I have high expectations for the company's next-gen models. Hopefully, we'll get our hands on a review unit shortly.
