The REDFLY gives me back the utility of a Handheld PC, but with the latest OS

So I was using the REDFLY Windows Mobile Smartphone Companion a bit more with the HTC Advantage and a thought came to me that the REDFLY solves the problem I had with the Windows CE Handheld PCs of the old days. I was a big fan of the Handheld PCs, like the Jornada 680, because they gave me a large keyboard and display to write, surf, and be productive on the go with a long battery life. The major reason I stopped using the Handheld PC devices was that the operating system grew a bit stale since Microsoft stopped updating the OS and the browser would not let me visit the websites I needed to access. The REDFLY can be paired with the latest and greatest Windows Mobile devices and as long as Celio Corp continues to roll out drivers/utilities for the operating system I can use the REDFLY as a modern day Handheld PC that stays as up to date as the devices I connect it with.

Asus MyPal A696

The lack of a phone might dampen the Asus MyPal A696's appeal for those seeking an all-in-one handheld, and we'd prefer Windows Mobile 6 rather than its predecessor. Even so, the £199 price, which includes navigation software, is attractive.

Toshiba Portégé G900

Toshiba’s Portégé G900 is a well-specified Windows Mobile 6 handheld with a good set of wireless connectivity options and an excellent 800-by-480 display. If it was a bit slimmer and integrated GPS as well, it would be a real winner.
