PARROT FREES PHOTOS FROM YOUR MOBILE
AND PC WITH THE WORLD’S FIRST BLUETOOTH
DIGITAL PICTURE FRAME
HANNOVER, GERMANY at CeBIT (March 10, 2006) — Parrot, a global innovator in Bluetooth technology has today announced the launch of the world’s first digital Bluetooth Photo Viewer.
Parrot’s innovative Photo Viewer is a brand new concept allowing consumers to easily view and share digital photos from any Bluetooth camera phone on an LCD photo frame.
In order to take advantage of this exciting new concept, users simply synchronise the Photo Viewer with their mobile phone, pick any picture they wish to display and send it to the Photo Viewer via Bluetooth. The image will instantly transfer to the screen. The frame also instantly selects either portrait or landscape format depending on its position and if the user changes the frame position, the photo automatically adjusts to match.
Henri Seydoux, Parrot’s founder and CEO, commented: “We all take photos with our mobile phones but rarely view them. Most of the time, they are confined to the phone and we don’t bother to print them. If we intend to send them, we do so by MMS to another phone. This new Bluetooth photo frame allows consumers to display their favourite photos quickly and easily.”
Parrot has given special attention to the elegant design of the Photo Viewer which is available in leather and bleached oak.

Wireless Bluetooth transfer of photos
