Why the Redfly is Doomed

Photobucket

Recently the Celio Redfly dropped in price to $399...but as I looked over at my $299 Asus EEE I still fail to understand the point. But the truth is, the Asus is not going to be the deathknell for the Redfly- its actually the Windows Mobile devices that will kill it.
To me, the pricepoint that will make the Redfly a must-have add-on is about $80-$100. But by the time the Redfly reaches that price, most Windows Mobile devices will likely incorporate TV-Out which, combined with an inexpensive bluetooth keyboard will reduce clutter, and be a more energy efficient solution.
