They say gift giving is all about getting your friend something that they didn't know they wanted, or something that they would never buy for themselves. We think the new T-Mobile Cameo digital picture frame would fit both categories.
Granted, digital pictures frames remain a popular gift, but we're a little puzzled over the need for a digital pictures frame specifically for your camera phone photos. Nonetheless,
The Cameo is a rebranded, which we told you about last March. Thanks to a SIM card, it can receive and display photos from any camera phone, be it T-Mobile or not. You send messages via a multimedia message or an e-mail and you can transfer them via a USB cable or a microSD card. It doesn't have Bluetooth, though. The seven-inch screen has a 720x480-pixel resolution; you can place the Cameo on a table or hang it on the wall in portrait or landscape orientation.
The $99 price isn't a bad price, but you will need to pay a monthly fee of $10 for the data connection. That's where we balk.
