Say `cheese'. (News, Trends & Analysis).

It won't help you do your job better, but it sure sounds like fun. AT&T Wireless Services recently introduced a digital picture service that will allow U.S. customers to use a mobile phone to take pictures and instantly send them to any e-mail address.

The company said it was the first U.S. wireless operator to offer the service, which is already available in Europe. To access the "mMode Pix" service, users must attach a miniature digital camera accessory to the bottom of a Sony Ericsson T68i phone, Once the camera is attached, the phone's screen becomes a viewfinder, and customers can take pictures by pushing a button. The camera can store 14 to 200 pictures depending on picture size.

The Sony Ericsson phone retails for $199.99 and the digital camera accessory costs $129.99. Customers also must subscribe to an AT&T Wireless voice calling plan, as well as its mMode mobile Web service. mMode Pix is available for no additional cost beyond standard mMode usage fees.

AT&T Wireless said users also can subscribe to a premium service that will allow them to post their pictures to online digital photo albums.
