Too bad that seller only ships in the UK. sad.gif I'd pick a couple up in a heartbeat at that price.

the guy agreed to halve postage prices on the second device, so I bought two! So, who would like one, we split the total price 50:50 and you only have to pay my paypal fee and P&P on top (estimated price is thus GBP8 or US$16 for one + paypal + P&P).

The good news is that I am coming to the USA (chandler, AZ) at the end of May so that postage to someone in USA, Mexico or Canada won't have to pay through the nose for postage.

I'll take it if it is still available.

I just received two of these, slightly different labels on the cards but the packaging is the same, and the cards are revision H, which is good news! I received a 50% discount on the P&P for the second card, so the total was GBP15, or about US$30 the pair.
I'm going to test them now to verify all is well.

-edit-
first one does, using debian 2.6.24.3, did "hciattach ttyS4 socket", "/etc/init.d/bluetooth start", was able to "pand --connect xx:xx..."

-edit-
second one does too. they're both same revision silicon & firmware despite card label being very different colour.
HCI Ver: 1.1 (0x1) HCI Rev: 0x1bb LMP Ver: 1.1 (0x1) LMP Subver: 0x1bb
Manufacturer: Cambridge Silicon Radio (10)

added this to the /etc/network/interfaces.

great! I shall pack one up for you, HV. My flight is already booked from London to Phoenix, using Northwest, via Chicago.

Excellent news. Hopefully it will work as well for me under pdaXii13 5.4.9. By different label I assume one is labelled in the current black and blue and other is in the older orange colour scheme. I hope you have pleasant trip and I look forward to receiving the card. Just let me know how much the shipping will be from Arizona and I'll send the whole payment to you. Thanks so much.

no, oddly, both are blue/black, just different! the packaging and everything else is identical! Oh, I should say as much for the benefit of others who might be considering, it doesn't include a CF to PCMCIA adaptor wotsit in case you were thinking it could be used to add bluetooth to a laptop with pcmcia slot.

It would be great if you could post the model # or eBay item # link so I can request the proper one.
