celio_redfly_mobile_companion_and_pThe last time you may have seen or heard of Redfly, you might have thought that it was merely a Windows Mobile terminal.  However, the developers at Redfly have announced that they have been working on a proof of concept of their Redfly mobile terminal working with an Android phone.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with Redfly, Redfly is a small netbook looking device that links with a smartphone, via bluetooth or USB, and allows the user to make use of  the phone’s OS with the Redfly’s keyboard and cursor.  The resolution on most phones is also upped to fit the Redfly’s screen.

What’s most intriguing about Redfly’s proof of concept with Android is that they were able to get Android to display at 800 x 480 pixels.  As the video demonstrates, this allows for much larger visual experience.  The Android web browser in the demo looked incredibly smooth, and once Android receives its Flash player, this may be a solid option for mobile professionals.

Take a look at the video after the break!
