Genie in a bottle? Not quite.
Last holiday season, it seems the Ritz Camera's of the world had a hard time keeping up supplies of the digital photo frames. So taking a cue and an early target toward the upcoming holiday season (hopefully it will be picture perfect), a new product is hitting the web shelves.
It's called GiiNii. Yup, that's the name.
GiiNii offers a full line of easy-to-use, feature-rich, economically priced digital photo frames that enable consumers to see, share and store their favorite digital photos. Available in a variety of sizes and finishes, GiiNii digital picture frames offer a wide range of features and prices so consumers can find the right one for any room in their homes.
All GiiNii digital picture frames come ready to use with three high-resolution photos pre-installed. When we turned on our review device sent by the PR folks, the frames instantly started playing a vivid color slide show, making them so easy to get up and running, they’re perfect for gift-giving. An auto rotate function, which the company first introduced on its products in 2007, automatically displays photos in their correct landscape or portrait orientation when the frame is turned. 8-Inch Ultra-Thin Digital Picture Frame Product Description
