"Our new picture frame with built-in Wi-Fi and Internet capability sets a new standard for ease of use and access to personalized content in this market."
The DSM-210 supports Wi-Fi Protected Set-up (WPS).

The DSM-210 is based on the Ubicom IP5170 multithreaded processor. Pan and zoom, image scaling and sophisticated transition effects are all supported by the built in DSP instructions. Flexible interfaces support all of the popular memory card types and formats.
"The launch of the DSM-210 demonstrates D-Link's focus on making products easy to use for the consumer," said Cathal Phelan, CEO of Ubicom. "We are pleased to be a partner with D-Link as they enter new and exciting markets."
