I have a sl-c860 and a 40Gb iPod that take with me everywhere. I would like to hook them together and use the iPod as a hard Disk for the Z, but the 860 has no usb host and the host cards are really expansive. Then I saw this:

Belkin is also coming out with this cool device.

Does anyone know if this would be possible/practical?
Thanks in advance,

Starting in April I am going to begin a 4-6month thru hike of the Pacific Crest Trail which runs 2650 miles from Mexico to Canada. I plan to log the entire trip on my Zaurus C860 and also add pictures to my daily journals from my digital camera. What I really to do is get a wireless option for the Z so that I can upload the journals every week or so to the site I have created just for this, trailb (no content yet). However, I am having trouble finding a wireless option….

At first I thought that I would get the Audiovox RTM8000 card and sign up for T- mobile’s affordable unlimited data plan, but then I noticed that the coverage for digital (required for the card) rarely crosses the trail. Below is a map of the coverage vs the trail for Oregon, and as you can see that just won’t work.



We are going to carry a cell-phone ( LG or Kyocera ) that has analog coverage anyway and I heard about the AerLink, but they do not seem to be for sale anymore. I also see that Socket has cell cards, but I do not know if they will work for the Z.

I would really appreciate any feedback, or other options that you may have. At this point speed is not nearly as important as coverage, reliability and price.

Thanx,
gabrielm
