REDFLY Smartphone Terminal C8N and C8
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.
Open C8N and C8
Both devices are the same size with 8 inch displays. Notice the color difference in touch pads?

The media port lets you plug in the $20 proprietary cable to media viewing capabilities.
The media cable (optional item) is about 6 inches long and has two ends that you can use with the REDFLY C8N.

There is a USB port and composite video connection for hooking up your device. The USB cable can be used as a third USB port on the device too.
