D-Link today unveiled its take on the ubiquitous digital photo frame. This one is a bit different from the standard vanity frame though — equipped with Wi-Fi, it lets users manage photos on their computer and stream image content from sites such as Flickr, Picasa and Facebook.

We've seen plenty of examples of these sorts of frames before — like Kodak's W series — but the DSM-210 can grab images from a much larger range of devices, including a NAS. It's also capable of connecting to FrameChannel, a free library of dynamic content which ranges from weather forecasts, RSS feeds and even English Premier League results for the football crazy.

At 25 centimetres (10 inches), the DSM-210 is a little larger than the conventional frame size, and packs 1GB of internal memory inside. If you're sick of the boring black frame, never fear as the D-Link is fully skinnable using the Skinit service.

Not one to scrimp on power-saving functionality, the new frame automatically detects when someone is in the room and powers on accordingly.

At a whopping AU$799, all this capability will certainly put a dent in your pocket.
