I don't know if SDHC will make all the current 4GB SD cards obsolete, but in the future, it may be difficult to purchase a new "Standard" 4GB SD card.
Don't take that last comment seriously, it's just a guesstimate.
Also, there is some hacking going on with the driver for the Treo 650 and it's "so-called" SDHC drivers. Someone is trying to get this driver to work on other Palm devices.
This thread has references to it.http://discussion.treocentral.com/showthread.php?t=131232
Okay, this happening faster than I thought it would. Lexar, SanDisk and Transcend are no longer listing non-SDHC 4GB cards in their product guides. All of them say that if you want more than 2GB in SD format you need an SDHC spec card. So that tells me that whatever is in channel for non-SDHC 4GB SD cards is it.
Also, an SDHC linux driver won't be much use to us if the SD slots in our Zaurii aren't SD 2.0 compatible so, please keep that in mind. The spec sheet from Sharp for the 3200 only says it is an SD slot so, we can't assume that it is SD 2.0 compliant and I highly doubt it is.
The SD 2.0 specifications were announced in January of last year. The 3200 would have been in the final manufacturing stages so, that it would be ready for March. That means there was no way that Sharp could have changed the 3200's design to incorporate the SD 2.0 spec.
