Bluetooth Integrated Antenna And Wifi Integrated Antenna Cf
« on: April 29, 2009, 02:13:51 pm »
Dear All,

Recently I came across some BT CF cards when the antenna and all circuitry is fully integrated into the body of the CF card such that it doesn't protrude out of a CF slot.

Anyone knows which of them would work?

Is any of the following BT CF whatever I am looking for?

The reason why I am interested is because I frequently thumb-type on the Zaurus and with the Anycom WIFI CF in the slot I find it very awkward to do so as the card pushes out very far.

Thanks in advance!

As far as I know, only Socket Bluetooth card fits completely into the slot. I never seen such Wi-Fi card.

I agree that CF extended makes typing uncomfortable. Embedding these devices into the Zaurus body may be an alternative to the CF card. It seems to be technically possible, but it requires hardware hacking.

the socketcom cards definitely work; be sure to get the later variants of them as they have better more stable firmware and can be reflashed.

the very first ones (which are very rare) were originally Nokia cards, N sold their product line to Socket and they cannot be reflashed and can lock up. there's discussions about this.
