Sl5600 Sdio
« on: August 24, 2005, 11:37:31 am »
Hi, first I'm a new user of the SL5600 and I'm looking for a SDIO wireless n bluetooth.
On this model, there's a SD slot but can it be used for IO? (I think it's a driver issue than a hardware issue right?)
I need to keep my CF slot empty (to plug a usb host adapter to a 40 gb hard drive)

I should have bought an sl-6000 but it's too expensive now so I went for an older model.

Thanks

Welcome!  I posted a similar response to this under another topic, but here goes:  Unfortunately, as far as I know there are no Zaurus models that are SDIO compatible.  It's the only real disappointment I've had with my 5600, but since there are a lot of excellent CF peripherals, this hasn't been much of an issue for me (I know your circumstances are different).  Even with this limitation, all my friends with Pocket PCs and Palms still drool over my Z.

All the best.
