Unfortunately, they don't ship internationally.

Could somebody buy this card for me?

I wonder who makes the flash memory chips in this CF card. In my experience, non-Sandisk CF cards tend to drain the battery of whatever device that they are in faster than a Sandisk CF card even if the device is not used. For example, if I leave a 1GB Kodak CF card in my Zaurus SL-C760 overnight, the battery will read low in the morning. If I leave a 4GB CF Sandisk card in my Zaurus SL-C760 overnight, the battery will still be full in the morning.

Probably not. When flash card manufacturers cite a speed such as 40X, they mean that the device is about 40 times faster than the original 1X 150KB/s CDROM drives. That would be about 6000KB/s or about 6MB/s, 6 MegaBytes per second. No one, as far as I know, has reported such sustained data transfer rates on a Zaurus with a flash memory device.

Now it's $104.99 + shipping.

A little much for me to spend. I ordered one of the 8 GB ones ($57.99 + shipping). I already have had a 4 GB one from A-Data in my Z for about maybe a year. It has worked flawlessly.

I think I'll post that too, since it is a little more affordable than the 16 GB card.
