The REDFLY Mobile Companion embiggens even the smallest of compatible Windows Mobile smartphones and PDAs. In light of this, the Memphis police department just threw down for 1,200 of the devices and deployed them in their cruisers, saying, “The REDFLYs save hardware costs while increasing productivity and also improving the quality and accuracy of the officers’ field reports.”

The department had previously been doing everything by smartphone but the small screens and keyboards “limited the officers’ ability to effectively use the [Memphis PD] databases and applications to aid in their jobs.” And reports had a tendency to be much shorter than they should have been since they had to be typed using a thumb keyboard. Spelling errors were frequent as well. The REDFLYs make it much easier to type detailed reports from the field.
