Wireless frames are a nice rotating reminder of friends and family, but you probably don’t get to update yours as often as you’d like to. I know my parents wait for me to come visit to add or delete anything on theirs.

It would be nice if new photos could randomly appear, which is the idea behind the Wireless PIXXA. This 8-inch digital frame uses Wi-Fi to send and receive photos from any computer or another PIXXA frame. It also has Photo Messenger, a new feature that allows users to send and receive photos as well as chat via instant messenger.

Other features include calendar and real-time news, weather and traffic functions. Users are also treated to 50MB of online storage, as well as some greeting card feature, which allows you to save a stamp and send birthday, get well and other messages to other people’s frames.

The Wireless PIXXA will be available in the first half or 2008 for $299.
