"Our design point was to make a digital picture frame product easy enough for grandparents and parents to automatically share family pictures and a product flexible enough for teenagers to be able to access and broadcast their favorite Internet content to friends. Shogo is a living digital photo frame that packs all this and more capabilities into a simple, stylish, easy-to-operate mobile form factor." Shogo is the world's first touch-screen WiFi-integrated lifestyle digital picture frame with a number of groundbreaking category-first features. Its touch-screen and simple user interface makes it very easy to use and navigate its menus to select various photo albums and other content for viewing.

And with the "Shogo Friend" capability, you can share your favorite shots from your Shogo, instantly and with one or multiple friends without a PC. With the Shogo digital frame and the myshogo.com subscription service, managing content and getting connected to people around you has never been so easy.
Shogo digital picture frame - Price & Availabilty
The global market for digital picture frames is expected to explode, going from 2.8 million units in 2006 up to 42.3 million units by 2011 (according to IDC). Shogo is well-positioned in the market, especially as WiFi connectivity becomes more pervasive and it offers valuable functionality and sex appeal that has been missing in existing products available in the market today. "To date, the digital picture frame has been a decorative gift with limited functionality that is soon stored away in the family closet," said Schneersohn. "We believe Shogo is well placed to do for digital picture frames what the iPod did for the pervasiveness of the mp3 world." Shogo is expected to be available in US retail outlets in spring 2008 at an MSRP of $299 for a touch-screen, WiFi version.
