The Redfly is a laptop-shaped device that can be used to give a Windows Mobile device a larger display, full keyboard, mouse, and USB ports. Essentially, it turns a smartphone into a subnotebook.

It normally sells for $400, but in late September Celio Corp. launched a special promotion where it cut the Redfly’s cost in half. This promotion is about to end, and on November 1 this accessory will return to full price.

The Redfly is available now from  Celio Corp, eXpansys,,, and Enterprise Mobile.

More about the Celio Redfly

Although at first glance this model resembles a subnotebook, the Redfly works completely differently. It serves as an accessory for a smartphone, and does not act as a stand-alone computer.

Celio RedflyWhen Celio’s device is connected to a Windows Mobile phone, either by Bluetooth or USB, any application on the smartphone is shown on the Mobile Companion’s 8-inch, WVGA display without modification or synchronization. The user is then able to interact with that application through a large keyboard and trackpad or mouse.

It is able to run for eight hours on a single charge, or some of its battery power can be transferred to the smartphone. 

The Redfly is 9 inches wide, 6 inches deep, and 1 inch thick. It weighs 2.0 pounds (plus a 4 oz. adapter).
