We've just received word that Celio and the WMExperts Store have reduced the price of the Redfly to $199.95. It's a temporary price reduction through the rest of September and October and they're telling us that the deal will only last as long as they have supplies of “seed units.” What Celio is aiming for is getting the Redfly into the hands of users, they mentioned at CTIA that they really feel that once they get enough of the devices out there, the gadget's popularity will grow. Here's what they told us:
Celio has found that a REDFLY device in the hands of media, developers or mobile enthusiasts has tremendous viral marketing benefit. Therefore, we have budgeted a limited amount of REDFLY devices for placement at $199 until October 31, 2008*
