    Eye-Fi is tackling the problem from a different perspective. They’re building wifi directly into the flash storage. Their first product will be a 1GB SD card with built in Wifi. For about the same price as a 1 GB flash card sells for today - $100. You’ll be able to upload photos, or whatever, directly from your device to a computer using the built in storage wifi capabilities.

    There’s lots more buzz on this. See Robert Scoble and Scott Beale, who are just as excited as I am about Eye-Fi. No guidance on when this will be available, but they have working prototypes. If Eye-Fi owns the intellectual property around this, look for them to license the technology to flash memory producers. I will buy this the second it becomes available.
    No definite details yet, but it would seem that it might be that you set up the card and tell it where to send the files, then it waits for a wifi connection and sends your files there whenever it gets that connection. I don't suppose you could use it to actually get on the internet with your treo unless it was a treo that had the wifi drivers working correctly, so it won't get you around that hurdle.

    BUT, consider it sort of an infinite storage card, maybe? Either way, cool as hell.

    you beat me to it just saw this on engadget. this would be great in a 700P

    Check out this link! If Palm gives us Wifi drivers with the 700P, we will be in business!

    They put the wifi in flash and still give us 1 gig of memory with no external antenna

    I don't know about that dutch - this one looks like it stays fully inside the SD slot. If so, that would stop my beefing about stuff stickin' out all over the place.
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    The device is fully contained in the slot because the SD slots in cameras have doors which need to close.

    Just came across this on hiptechblog, its main purpose is for digital cameras, so it may only be able to send photos but anyway. This is a wifi sd card that is the normal size of a regular sd card. The one they show holds 1 gb of data as well. There is no release date, if it will work with a treo for more than photo, and the price hiptechblog states as $100-150 but who knows. Though many need more than a gig, and dont know if it will work but is nice to look into. Heres the website...

    This looks interesting. Wi-Fi and memory on a normal size SD card, so it doesn't stick out. Being developed for digital cameras now (3rd Q), but in FAQ section they are looking into development for PDA's.

    Please, don't get my hopes up like this again.
    That is nothing but a Wifi adapter built into a SD card. Doesn't prove it will make Wifi work in the Treo. The Treo would still be missing the needed drivers to make this work.

    Yeah, unless you've got some Palm Treo 700P drivers in your back pocket to go with it, it's not going to work. We have quite a few hardware versions of wi-fi cards, problem is that we have zero software drivers to go with it.

    this is not a realistic option until they offer these in many flavors. IE 512mb,1, 2, & 4 gig. These guys are late in the game so they need to keep up with storage sizes on the market. I am going to get a 4 gig for my Treo & don't want to carry around two cards. It is not practical. Lame

    Eye-Fi is not your typical WiFi adapter. I is suppose to work on any platform. Very limited in what it can do. Basically tranfers information to-from the SD card memory.

    You would not be able to use it with blazer ot any other browser. good for transferrring large files like pictures.
