Redfly + Android? = Of Course!

January 7, 2009

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!
