How excited can we be about a digital photo frame? Okay, not that excited, but still our seismic Geiger counters are wobbling for this one-of-a-kind combo.Looking pretty much like any other photo frame it also has Wi-Fi hidden behind its seven-inch LCD panel. 'Hardly unique', you scoff, ah but this picture player also has its own Gmail address. Off on your round the world trip? Leave one of these in the kitchen and you can send instant postcards home by MMS or email. Look Mum, here I am in Rio.But wait! There's more. The wireless link can also hook up to Flickr RSS feeds to show your latest uploads or be set to certain keywords – say every shot of the new baby. This is definitely what Flickr fans have been waiting for.Naturally it'll also work from boring old SD card, but where's the fun in that?If all this is creating a sense of deja vu then fear not. The first eStarling was launched last year but sold out within days. This updated version is now on pre-order for a similarly exclusive batch.
