Could somebody buy this card for me, as it's only available for US residents. I can pay via PayPal or Western Union...

oh MAN! I just updated to a 8gb cf card.

To be honest, i had alot of problems making my 8gb work but it works fine. The terminal was very buggy! i was patient attempting like 8 hours till i made it work. Anyway, I am very tempted to trying this.

I'm also interested in buying one of this. As long as I live in Spain, I can't.
So if someone want to help us, please add me to the list.

Thanks.

Great! I will be in US soon. The offer is really tempting. Does the ordering accept shipping to temporary addresses like hotels or the like? rolleyes.gif

Aaargh. The rebate form says it's for "US residence only". I will have to think of asking someone there to give me a hand.

flash memory prices are dropping fast in Europe too, so I would guess 16GB CF cards will be arriving soon

personally, I'm eager for SDHC support on Zaurus, and would like an 8G SDHC card (I mean, the 4GB sd card and 4GB microdrive I have just aren't enough!!!)

sorry all!

sorry, zdevil has first bids and I just read the rebate is one per household. I really wanted to help everybody out.

and don't think about borrowing my girlfriends address because I am actually going to use hers to order my card(for testing purpouses).

What a shame, I missed out, came second after Zdevil...

Is there anyone else who'd be willing to purchase this card for me?

Sorry, ShiroiKuma. I guess there should be some other lucky US Z users who would help you out. biggrin.gif
And many many thanks to Cresho for his generosity, and sorry also for using your privilege, because at first I didn't realize the rebate is for "one person, one item and one household" only, until Cresho and I began to talk about the shipping plans.
Actually I also wanna use the card for kinda experimental purpose: to load a full OpenBSD off this card and to see how it fares in terms of speed, power consumption and stability. IMHO the current OpenBSD/Zaurus truly deserves living in this card!
Surely I will write a review/report on my finding. wink.gif

a small update, the card works. I took a screenshot as well but got too lazy in posting it here. I had to since i needed to remove the barcode from the box for rebate purpouses and it would of been a shame if i send a non working item. laugh.gif
