    I have seen a few links stating the 650 SD slot is SD/IO, so does that mean one of those WiFi cards will work, with or without built-in 256 memory?

    We will not know until the 650 is out.

    Is an issue like this not generic? I mean, does an SD/IO slot always permit use of a WiFi card, sometimes permit depending upon unit it is in, or never permits it? Just curious.

    It has been stated in several threads (I think), that the Treo 600 does not supply enough power to the SD/IO slot to run a WiFi card. We can only hope that PLMO has corrected this on the 650.

    I think all it means is that the Treo can communicate 2-way (In/Out) with the SD device; the manufacturer still has to write device-specific drivers. So if palmOne write the drivers, and there's no unforeseen impediment (eg. the t600 reportedly couldn't supply enough current to the SDIO slot), then it's possible.

    The Treo 650 only featured an SD slot. The 650 has SD/IO, and should have sufficient power. The only question is: When will (or will) palmOne write drivers for the 650?

    I heard that PalmOne supplied enough power to the SDIO slot for the WiFi card to work... but we won't know until the 650 comes.

    I presume you mean "The Treo 600 only featured an SD slot", in which case...

    "SD I/O (Secure Digital Input/Output) ready"

    Is there a difference between "ready" and "capable"?

    It's an odd wording, but I doubt it.

    There are so few Palm compatible SDIO peripherals that probably few users would have noticed the difference, but for instance the Margi PresenterToGo module is an SDIO peripheral which does work with the Treo 600.

    Third parties such as the PIC and Infosync reviews are less ambiguous...

    Edit: ...and in fact the palmOne spec sheets for the GSM and CDMA t600s both state "SD/MMC I/O expansion".
