REDFLY Finalist for 2009 Andrew Seybold Choice Award

We’ve spoken about the Celio Redfly Mobile Companion a fair bit recently after we reviewed the product last year. Last month Memphis Police department announced that they just deployed 1,200 of the Redfly units as an alternative to in-car laptops.

Today more great news for Celio as the REDFLY Mobile Companion has just been named finalist for 2009 Andrew Seybold Choice Award.

Celio Corp today announced that its flagship product, the REDFLY Mobile  Companion, has been named a finalist for the 2009 Andrew Seybold Choice  Awards in the category of Most Innovative Mobile Service. The category  winner will be named April 1, 2009, at the 19th Annual Andrew Seybold  Wireless Dinner at CTIA Wireless 2009 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“We’re honored that the REDFLY Mobile Companion has been named as a  finalist for such a prestigious award by a wireless industry veteran  with credentials like Andrew Seybold,” said Kirt Bailey, president and  CEO of Celio Corp. “Andrew’s influence in the mobile and wireless  industries runs deep, and his acknowledgement of the REDFLY and its  technology as an innovative product reinforces Celio’s vision of  providing solutions that enable the smartphone to become the primary  mobile computing device.”

The REDFLY Mobile Companion has a large screen, full QWERTY keyboard,  touchpad, and USB, VGA and media ports, enabling people to use their  smartphones like a laptop. The REDFLY has no OS, storage or processor,  but uses the smartphone’s computing power to give users the ability to  interact with the smartphone’s familiar user interface or access remote  PC and company applications on an 800×480 resolution display.

The total cost of ownership of the REDFLY is significantly less than  that of a laptop or netbook because the REDFLY does not require any  additional software, wireless subscriptions or IT management. This tool  significantly increases productivity and efficiency of mobile workers.
