HP DreamScreen – Advanced Digital Photoframe

hp_dreamscreen_real_life_640The HP DreamScreen is more than your average digital photoframe as it also connects with Facebook, lets you listen to Pandora radio, check the weather and more. Look at it as an interactive frame rather than a dull frame that shows slides of your last vacation.

Other features on the HP DreamScreen allow it to function as an alarm clock. It connects to your home network over a wireless connection so that sites such as Snapfish and Facebook can be used. Also, the wifi connection allows the frame to have images sent to and from your laptop or PC.
