SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Celio Corp, the maker of the REDFLY Smartphone Terminal, unveiled two new models: the REDFLY C7 and REDFLY C8N.
The REDFLY series of products are smartphone terminals designed to offer the mobile workforce a larger keyboard and screen for easy use of e-mail, web, business applications, remote access and cloud computing resources.
The REDFLY C7 is a new, more affordable model with a power-saving 7-inch display, light-weight five-hour battery, and feather-light design under 1.5 lbs. The REDFLY C8N is the next evolution of the original REDFLY design, enhanced to allow the use of the 8-inch screen by an iPod, iPhone, Zune, or digital camera.
These new Celio products continue to support the smartphone, the most successful mobile computing platform available today, and enable the smartphone's Internet-based and cloud-computing applications.
Available the week of December 1, 2008, REDFLY C7 and C8N can be pre-ordered today from select Celio resellers for a suggested retail price of $229 and $299, respectively.
"REDFLY has taken off in the smartphone market and these new models are designed to extend this success," said Kirt Bailey, CEO of Celio Corp. "The REDFLY's larger keyboard and screen brings the right functionality to the smartphone, making it the netbook of choice without the additional TCO (total cost of ownership) and data loss risk of a UMPC or laptop. Combined with the REDFLY device, the smartphone has become the center of mobile virtualization and mobile cloud-based computing."
The REDFLY C7 is the result of a customer-driven plan for a power-efficient, lightweight and more affordable solution. With a power-saving 7-inch display and power-efficient features, the REDFLY C7 uses a lightweight battery that provides up to five hours of performance, perfect for many mobile users. The REDFLY C7 weighs less than 1.5 lbs., lighter than any mobile computer with a 7-inch display.
The REDFLY C8N evolved from the original REDFLY design to meet overwhelming customer demand to use the larger screen as an external display for media players such as an iPod, iPhone, Zune, or digital camera. A new REDFLY Media Port and REDFLY Media Cable provide a simultaneous connection as a third USB port and composite video input (NTSC/PAL compatible). Now the REDFLY's 800x480-pixel screen can be used to view photos, show demos and even watch movies. The REDFLY Media Cable is available for a suggested retail price of $19.95.
