Image Gallery: REDFLY C8N Smartphone Terminal

The Celio REDFLY C8 was released a few months ago as a mobile companion to Windows Mobile devices. The REDFLY provides an 8 inch display and large keyboard with the Windows Mobile device serving as the CPU for the solution. The new C8N brings a media port to the REDFLY so you can now watch media content from your iPod, iPhone, Zune, or other portable media player. Celio also made a couple of minor improvements in the keyboard that improves the usability of the keyboard.
