    Obviously a used iPad 1 + iCloud would do the trick but I have a feeling you already knew that, and that it's beyond the price you had in mind. :)

    I thought picture frames required SD cards. So you want a picture frame to transfer photos wirelessly and has a built in storage to store your photos from the iPhone? How would you then retrieve them - via usb /mini-hmdi to what port in the iPhone?

    Haven't seen one.

    Panasonic has a model with an iPhone dock that you can use to transfer pictures directly. Actually any frame with a USB socket should work; just plug the iPhone in with a sync cable and it will show up as a USB drive with a DCIM directory containing pictures, just like a camera memory card.

    Some frames let you add pictures by emailing them to a special address, e.g. Kodak wifi frames have this feature. You could email pics from your iPhone, this would be handy particularly when you are not near the frame (e.g. email pictures to a family member).

    A WiFi frame with the ability to pull from your iCloud Photo Stream would be neat, my Apple TV does it & displays Photo Stream pictures as a screen saver. I haven't seen any digital frame products with that capability yet.

    Answer to your question.

    Hello, The company that makes a digital picture frame that allows you to transfer pictures directly from an iphone or iPad is called DIA by Parrot Design. It's a european company and it costs around $500. But for the high-tech individual, it's priceless.

    I suggest that you transfer the photos to your computer, then buy a digital frame that connects to your computer via USB. They are much cheaper.
