January 16, 2007 – Last week at CES, Smartphone developer i-mate announced its new Momento Wi-Fi-enabled digital photo frames which enables connection to their online photo-sharing site, www.momentolive.com. The 10.2-inch Momento 100 frame will retail for $299 and the 7-inch Momento 70 frame will retail for $199.99. Both frames will be available online and at retail stores at the end of the month.

"Up to this point, digital picture frames have lacked this essential connection to the PC and Internet that have made other types of media devices an integral part of our everyday lives," said i-mate CTO David Hayes in a Jan. 8 press release. Like the Wi-Fi-enabled Kodak frames with EasyShare Gallery connections that were also announced at CES,  the Momento frames continue the trend of frames which include direct online sharing.  Users can send their images from a PC with the subscription-based Momento Live! right to the digital frame.

The PC-compatible Momento frames also support Windows XP and the new Microsoft Windows Vista system that was also announced at CES. "We have collaborated with the Momento development team to ensure a certified product of the highest quality that takes advantage of everything Vista has to offer," said Microsoft Windows Vista director of marketing Dave Wascha in the press release.

The Momento 100 and Momento 70 frames come with built-in memory, a remote control, interchangeable frames, and a free 30-day trial of Momento Live!
