Is this the future for mobile computing?

grey_excel_png2.pngI was browsing the internet and came across this product called REDFLY.  It is a portable smartphone terminal.  REDFLY connects to a smartphone using a bluetooth connection or USB cable and provides a large keyboard and monitor.  There is no CPU or operating system on the terminal.  It simply provides a more functional workspace to harness the computing power of the modern smartphone. 

Unfortunately, at this point REDFLY is only compatible with Windows Mobile based smartphones.  But I am envisioning the day that Seton Hall is distributing $199 terminals to students to use with their smartphones.
