Redfly salvages Foleo idea
The concept of Palm's now-defunct Foleo companion is still alive, reports say. Celio Technology has announced the Redfly Smartphone Interface System, a device which allows Windows Mobile phones to take advantage of keyboards, trackpads and larger displays on Bluetooth 2.0-connected "Mobile Companions." The initial Companion weighs just under two pounds, has an eight-inch screen, and has an estimated battery life of eight hours.
Critically, users can treat a Companion as a second bridge, connecting to yet larger displays and keyboards as well as mice and miscellaneous USB devices. The Companion's price is expected to be $499, but people will have to wait until at least this month's CES to learn a release date. [via Pocket-lint]
