Hp is about to introduce a new digital frame that seems to go far beyond the normal viewing of photos. The HP DreamScreen will allow you to show photos, connect to the internet, access social media and more. For the suggested price of $249 you can have one.
We all know how these devices show you pictures, but what about your friends latest pictures from Facebook, or their most recent status updates? Now that’s what I’m talking about, remember it’s not a full time computer, so don’t think you will be responding back on the unit, and it does not have a touch pad. (YES I’M STILL WAITING FOR THE APPLE TABLET) That kind of makes me sad, but come on they gotta keep the cost down somehow. Imagine Pandora streaming music for you, the DreamScreen does that too. I’m finding a weather forecast is pretty important in Florida, DreamScreen has you covered.
This seems to be just the beginning for the digital photo frame revolution which for 2009 is a $25 million dollar industry, projected for $50 million by 2013. When twitter, and a open API are available (I hope) I’ll be more able to really show my geekness to those who visit me and my HP DreamScreen.
