Celio, makers of the Redfly, have extended their special 50% discount promotion until Monday, November 17, 2008.
"We’re extending our $199 promotional pricing for REDFLY until Monday, November 17th, 2008.
The promotion has been so successful at introducing REDFLY to new markets, users and applications that we decided to keep it up for a few more weeks.
In addition to the many casual and power Windows Mobile users out there who are buying REDFLY for themselves, the reception has been tremendous into vertical markets like healthcare, government, sales force, and service force applications.
REDFLY is just the beginning of a series of planned products based around the enablement of the smartphone as both a mobile computer or netbook and access point to remote virtual systems and cloud computing."
What I find interesting about the Redfly is that unlike the ill-fated Palm Foleo or the Asus Eee PC netbook, the Redfly is not a stand-alone computer. It is, simply put, a dumb terminal for your Windows Mobile smartphone. All of your data is on your phone and there is not need to sync your phone to another device.
After November 17, the Redfly will return to it's regular price, $399.
