Kaiser Baas announces the release of a new digital photo frame that incorporates Bluetooth technology, for wirelessly transferring digital photos from mobile phones and other Bluetooth devices directly to the 8 inch digital photo frame for display. This adds a new dimension to how users traditionally get their digital photos from a camera or PC to the digital photo frame and vice versa. With Bluetooth technology, the wider community of mobile camera phone users can make full use of their photos by displaying it in a picture frame.

Bluetooth convenience

With a built-in Bluetooth technology (version 2.0), it allows users to conveniently transfer their digital photos wirelessly from virtually any Bluetooth device to the digital photo frame; no need to connect to a PC or swap memory cards from the digital camera. The most common device for consumers to use with the 8″ Kaiser Baas digital photo frame is a mobile phone with a built-in camera & Bluetooth technology.

Users can now make full use of the digital photos they take on their mobile phones and view them at a higher, more “eye-friendly” and compatible resolution. The connection process is as simple as scanning from a Bluetooth device and sending the digital photo to the frame. With 256MB of onboard flash memory, there is no need to purchase an additional memory card just to have the storage space to play back digital photos, music and video.

If a different user likes a stored photo, the unit also lets users wirelessly send digital photos back to a Bluetooth device.

Other features

With an 8 ” digital LCD display set in a 4:3 aspect ratio, users can fully appreciate the photos they take will correctly fit the display without any editing, cropping of the image or black bars on each side of their picture.
