Isabella Products, makers of consumer mobile Internet devices, is certainly a company to watch in 2011. They unveiled their new product centered around the digital frame category at CES – the Mini.
Isabella’s first product, the Vizit, was the world’s first wirelessly enabled digital photo frame, and the Mini targets the millions of photo frames and other digital displays that aren’t yet connected. Powered by the AT&T broadband network, Mini is a small wirelessly connected USB device that you can be plug into any digital photo frame, TV, or other display, making them wirelessly connected to receive photos over the air, in real-time. Isabella says the device will be available in the second quarter of this year.
The announcement of the Mini comes just months after Isabella Products announced a partnership with Houghton Mifflin to release the world’s first wireless tablet for children – the Fable – which will also be available in mid-2011.
“The flexibility of the VizitMe.com platform allows us to effectively connect unconnected USB-enabled digital photo frames through a pocket-sized mobile device like Mini so consumers can enjoy real-time photo sharing,” said Founder and CEO Matthew Growney.
The Mini can also be connected to Isabella’s VizitMe content management system, where Vizit owners can upload photos and store their collection, as well as manage who they share photos with.
