iiNet Labs is at it again. After seeing devices such as the Original BoB, BoB Lite, BoB2 and iiNet’s Wireless Bridge, iiNet has now launched Piix. Piix is a digital photo frame like no other currently on the market. With the ability to send MMS photo’s or video’s directly to Piix to view on its 9 inch LCD Screen (800 x 480 pixels), it’s a digital photo frame that will impress everyone.
Features of Piix
- 3G enabled to receive MMS pictures and videos
- 9 inch LCD screen
- 4GB of internal memory
- An SD Card slot to hold more media
- Gravity sensor so you can have it vertical or landscape while viewing pictures
- Motion sensor with auto power off to save energy
- Photo slide show to automatically browse through all your media
- Video and audio play for watching those home movies
- A clock, calendar and alarm
With a price tag of $199, it does not come cheap. It also requires a 3G connection in which iiNet supplies a Sim Card with Piix, but there is no indication on the monthly costs associated with the iiNet Sim Card. Piix does not contain any batteries so you are limited to using Piix near a power point, which may be inconvenient for viewing photo’s with family and friends on the kitchen table.
It will be interesting to see the uptake Piix in the market, but for a price tag of $199, I won’t be buying one unless it was a gift from iiNet or from signing up / renewing a 24 month contract.
