Back in January, Celio Corp showed off their up and coming REDFLY PC software that would let you use your existing PC to connect to your Windows Mobile device and access it just like you would from the REDFLY Mobile Companion. I was at CTIA last week and Celio announced that the REDFLY Mobile Viewer software is now available to download for free public beta testing. I plan to take it for a spin on my MSI Wind and will post a video of it in action here soon. Prior to attending CTIA and seeing the software in action first hand and talking with the folks at Celio I have to say I wasn't quite sure why someone would want or need this on a laptop or PC, but I had a moment there were I "got" it and think there are some benefits to the software for Windows Mobile owners.

Jason Dunn runs the Thoughts Media sites and preached to me for a couple of years about the benefits of a hosted Exchange solution. I finally decided to give it a try just over a year ago and now I can never go back to syncing my PIM data via cables again. I subscribe to 4Smartphone (part of Jason's recommendation) with their Mobile level plan subscription (US$12.95/month) and sync my Windows Mobile, S60, Windows, and Mac devices to the service, with hopes to soon sync my iPhone when the 2.0 update is released.
