    REDFLY Blackberry Support

    so for those unaware of what redfly is, i know i didnt, its a sort of laptop just for your smartphone.

    essentially you can sync your smartphone with it and use the larger screen and keyboard rather than your phone for surfing the web, emails, etc.

    they have support for windows mobile and android right now and are working on blackberry support as a free upgrade for existing customers.

    engadget is reporting that it works via either physical cable or Bluetooth, and at this point supports Bold 9000, Curve 8900, and Tour 9630, with more phones promised as they're released.

    now honestly i wouldnt get one but im curious what everyone else thinks :P

    Eh. I dunno. That would be for some one who uses their Blackberry for heavy emailing.

    unless its free........

    cool idea....but honestly......why would I surf around on my blackberry on my laptop? my bb supports my laptop, not the other way around.....

    I already have rdm+, and it's sketchy at best, but at least useful

    maybe i am missing something crucial here, but I can't honestly think of a good use for this program on a day to day basis....

    What do the developers have to say?

    Even with heavy emailing, if you have proximity to your laptop, why not just use it?

    sorry...just thought of a good use....it would be a good way to get BBM on your desktop....kind of a cheat, but nonetheless

    I spent 320 days on the road last year.....60 plus cities.....

    even the smaller centres have free wifi at their airports now

    I don't even think there is a hotel that doesnt offer free wifi anymore.....plus with the cheap data options now....if you can afford data roaming, you can afford to tether your bb

    This would be a tough sell for me. If your going to carry this around, why not bring a laptop?

    Very interesting. Not sure if I would partake an anything like that. It could be beneficial to some. I would rather just use my laptop.

    how about a question

    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
