Seriously????


Weak


:D


(ok, I'm kidding) - throw a bone to your loyal early adopters, testers, and advocates! I've been showing off my Redfly to all my friends.

Oh well, at least 11am ET is 8am here, so I won't have to wait long for whatever it is (I have my ideas and I hope I'm right).

Man! This could turn out to be a banner week. OLPC started their 2008 Give One, Get One on Monday, and now Celio has an announcement on Tuesday. :)

Anyone wanna make a prediction?
Here are my guesses:
BB and/or iPhone support
Got sling player to work
Lower price and/or extended the pricing program which ended yesterday.

what I'd love

new driver with improved video support via USB
a new partnership with Microvision
higher screen res support - e.g. native scaling of 1024x600 to fit 800x480 screen.

better?

REDFLY 2 annoiuncement with various hardware upgrades as per hopes posted in various threads.
free/heavily discounted upgrade from I to II if you bought in the last 30 days.

hey ... a man can dream, right?

My guess:

  • New Drivers
  • Support for video
  • touch screen?
  • New hardware with discounted upgrade price for early adopters?

it's 10am... one hour to go.

Colour change to black for both versions

Cheaper, lighter version $229 = 5 hr battery

Heavier, more expensive version $299= 8 hour battery, View NTSC/PAL external video with media port.

800x600 VGA out with both.

I'd like clarification on the video playing - is it that using the RedFly media cable lets you play video using your phone's media player? Or is something more going on?

I also see new drivers...!!!

Driver page not working with FF3.1 Beta 1...trying IE 7...

I think the best 2 things about this is the wider screen and the new prices... BRAVO!

Still not as good a 199.. but it sure beats $400-$500.

i think the media port (if i understand it correctly) is pointless.. there's already a VGA out.. meh.. seems like a nice option.. but i'd rather have seen one of the other features people have been talking about around here... but i understand cost limitations so *shrug*.

I definitely think the sku offered first (the red one) was teh best one.. it's the C8 minus the larger screen and video out port.. but keeping that awesome battery. I do like the new color too!
