We at Unplggd are pretty big fans of digital picture frames. They are a great way to display prints and make nice gifts for loves ones. Some of our loved ones still have many pictures that are not in digital form, the JOBO ScanViewer solves the problem of how to display these in a quick and easy way. This high resolution 8" multimedia digital picture frame comes with a built-in photo scanner!

The ScanViewer has a built 1 GB of internal storage and supports CF, SD, SDHC, MMC, MS, and XD memory cards. The scanner, which is what sets this apart from other digital picture frames on the market, scans at up to 1200x1800 pixels, 300 dpi. The frame is also equipped with a USB port allowing it to be connected to a computer or a PictBridge compatible photo printer. Unfortunately, due to the size of the scanner the only supported photo sizes for scanning are from 1.6" x 2" (4 x 5 cm) up to 4" x 6" (10 x 15cm).

What do you think, gimmicky gadget, or exactly the right gift for the loved one who wants an easy way to scan in 4" x 6" photos?
