    Honestly, this is so out there...

    We do weekly brainstorming in my company....and, being the president, I get ultimate veto...but, lmao, this wouldn't get into the meeting...let alone into production

    I sincerely hope that I am missing a crucial part of this. I understand that a ton of people probably spent a lot of time getting this to work.....

    So, what was the goal for this software?? What's the idea here?

    well its not even just software, its a standalone device...they even have various models.

    but its for like heavy email users to have a larger clearer screen and full keyboard.

    i see the concept, i just dont see a big enough market

    k....we need to change the poll....

    no one is gonna try that for 5 mins if they have to buy hardware....

    I wanna change my vote....

    THAT is THE most retarded thing I have ever seen.....anyone that does THAT much email, definitely has access to a computer during the day...

    I send/receive close to 150 a day, and that is completely out of my realm of understanding

    That's why I didnt understand the whole "device" situation......

    Are they going to make a belt clip for it?

    Sun,

    That is all we all want, personally I think the Redfly is a "Failing" enterprise. Just would not want to carry both around and my notebook.

    OK, I figured I would weigh in on this one...
    I had a Redfly until I moved from WinMo phones to my Storm back in January. I was able to get it cheap and I will tell you it worked great with my Moto Q9m and any other WinMo phone I hooked it up to. Now, did I buy it because I am an email freak or airport dweller? No, I got it because I am a gadget nut and have to try everything new out there.

    Pros:
    will charge your phone when connected with a USB cable
    can use a wired or wireless USB mouse
    gives you a bigger screen for viewing emails, docs, web surfing
    battery lasts FOREVER
    holds no info so if lost or stolen it is not a security issue

    Cons:
    another gadget to lug around
    you really need to have a wifi enabled smartphone to really make websurfing a good experience
    limited to only what your smartphone can do - a netbook is way more usable
    expensive - should be $99

    Unfortunately I must agree with P3Designs that the Redfly is a "failing enterprise" because of the proliferation of netbooks and the newer and better smartphone hardware out there. Where Celio can/will come thru is with the software they have or are developing/testing that lets you do the Redfly thing with your regular notebook/netbook/desktop.
