PRESS RELEASE: D-Link, Cellcom Bring Cellphone Photos Home
Customers Can Send Cellphone Pics Directly to Wireless Frame
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Feb. 10 -- Ever wonder what to do with all those tiny photos stored on your cell phone? Thanks to D-Link, the end-to-end computer network solutions provider for consumers and businesses, wireless phone customers in Wisconsin and Upper Michigan can send those pictures home where they can be admired on a 10" wireless digital photo frame.
Cellcom, a Wisconsin-based cell phone carrier, offers technology that allows its customers to send photos from their mobile phones to the D-Link Wireless Digital Photo Frame (DSM-210), which is available for purchase on the Cellcom Web site (http://www.cellcom.com). Now, when Cellcom customers take photos with their cell phones, they can send the images directly to their D-Link photo frame to be viewed in the home.
The DSM-210 comes pre-loaded with FrameChannel software, which lets users remotely manage their frames over the Internet and offers a wealth of photo-sharing opportunities. FrameChannel works in conjunction with many of the most popular photo-sharing Web sites, including Google Picasa, Facebook, Flikr and Photobucket.
FrameChannel also provides the capability to send digital photos taken with a mobile phone back to the photo library, which in turn are posted directly to the D-Link photo frame.
"The D-Link wireless digital photo frame is designed to enhance the home entertainment experience by allowing users to view their favorite photos easily and conveniently virtually anywhere in the home," said John Meaney, director of field sales for D-Link Systems, Inc. "By offering our frames with FrameChannel photo sharing technology, Cellcom is taking that experience to the next level, adding another dimension of fun and value to its customers."
"Cell phones have become the Swiss Army knives of communication," said Rob Riordan, executive vice president and director of corporate development at Cellcom. "The ability to take photos with your cell phone makes it quick and easy to capture unexpected special moments. And now, the collaboration between Cellcom, D-Link and Frame Channel has made it simple for Grandma in Florida to see photos of the family taken in Green Bay within minutes."
The DSM-210 is equipped with a high-resolution 10" LCD with interchangeable faces (black or white) and connects over a WiFi home network with a built-in wireless adapter.
The frame will also display weather, RSS feeds and images from a USB drive or flash card and supports popular calendar programs.
Cellcom is a sister company of Nsight Telservices and a subsidiary of Nsight, a provider of communications services throughout Wisconsin and Michigan, with more than 80 retail and agent locations.
