iGala digital photo frame

Aequitas Technologies is said to be shipping the iGala Wireless Digital Picture Frame, an eight-inch touchscreen viewer with built-in Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi allows access to Microsoft's FrameIt service, which lets people browse news, traffic and weather information. Users can also browse photos on Flickr, but a focus of the device is on receiving Gmail, as the frame can be associated with an account and have photos e-mailed to it from any supporting Internet connection.

The iGala also relies on an interface cosmetically similar to that of the iPhone, but rendered at 800x600, and without any multi-touch functionality. When writing an e-mail, users have access to a touchscreen keyboard which dominates most of the screen. 1GB of internal storage is included with the frame, which is selling for $240.
