Maybe I'm missing something with the RedFly demo, but why would I want to carry a netbook like device that does nothing without my smartphone when you can just tether your smartphone with a standard netbook or laptop and still access my Citrix apps?  Did I not catch something?


The Celio Redfly has no hard drive as it contains only a Bluetooth connection and a battery that lasts up to 8 hours since there is no processor on the device and weighs only 2 pounds.. You can cable sych the Smartphone to the Redfly which will actually charge the Smartphone. All this is delivered on an 8 inch screen with full keyboard capability.
