Giving the Redfly a good test this weekend
We’re off to OSU this weekend to watch Alex run in the state finals. So, I’ve decided to put the Redfly through it’s paces while we’re away.
Really, the Redfly is only as good as your Smartphone, I’m finding. I have an older Motorola Q from Verizon and I believe I may need to upgrade the phone soon, to take advantage of Windows Mobile 6.1 on the Redfly. But, that’s another story.
Instead of taking my laptop with us on the trip, I’m leaving it here and taking just my Motorola Q and the Redfly – to see how well I can get along with the duo.
I’ll be reading and replying to email, texting, working on documents using “Documents to Go”, blogging, and whatever else I can cook up. I think this is the best way to completely test the Redfly for a thorough review. I have some myITforum.com business docs that I need to review before Monday and I’m counting that the Redfly will allow me to do that.
I’ll also try blogging live from the Track meet. It’ll be interesting to see how the Redfly screen does in direct sunlight. I’m not even taking my phone charger, because the Redfly charges the phone while in use, and also charges through the USB port while not in use.
Wish us good luck on both accounts, i.e., 1) Alex running in the State finals, and 2) My experience on the road with the Redfly.
BTW: If you’re not familiar with Documents to Go and use a Windows Mobile phone, you really should grab the app.
