    There is such a card. There is even one that combines Wi-Fi with a 128meg of storage. Attractively priced too. The ads speak to support (drivers) for PPC but are silent on Palm O/S.

    Oops, sorry. The cited url speaks to support for Palm Zire 71.

    Advanced Features

    Fast, strong connections to 802.11b HotSpots worldwide
    Optimized functionality for the lowest power and highest performance
    Support for PDA: Pocket PC 2002/2003, Windows Mobile 2003 and Palm Zire 71
    3 year warranty

    That could be good enough but either it does not work or they have not tested it with the Treo. Anyone know what version of Palm OS ships with the Zire?

    I believe the Zire runs OS 5, the same as the Treo. I think the key point is that the Treo has an SD-IO slot which is the type required to use SD expansion devices - such as the Wi-Fi card.

    It doesn't sound like we'll be seeing Treo 600 drivers The existing wireless radio requirements and very low power provided by the Treo's SD slot make it quite hard to get a card working.

    Seems confirmed... several reviews say even if sandisk were to provide specific patches for the Treo, the slot is underpowered for the task.
