Replying to:  Bluetooth card by dpn1231   Mar 30, 2004, 10:29 PM

Re: Bluetooth card

My understanding is that the PalmOne BT card only works with Palm OS 4 devices.

In fact - one of the treo websites (treocentral.com, I think) currently has a rather large bounty for the first company that can get bluetooth working on a Treo.

IMO it's 100% insane that none of PalmOne's high end PDAs can use any two of the following at the same time: BlueTooth, WiFi and GSM/CDMA. The only Palm that can - is the new Zire 72 - with the SanDisk WiFi card. None of the Tungstens can take a WiFi card - and the WiFi Tungsten doesn't have Bluetooth. The Treo 600 can use neither card.

It's what's keeping me from upgrading from my Koycera 6035 (as old and as goofy as the thing is - the Treo 600 just isn't $400 better than it. Same screen rez. Neither have bluetooth, neither have wifi).

Palm needs to get with the times - and either get some cards out there that work with the extremely low power tollerances of their devices - or release some devices with the technology. I'm keeping my money in my pocket until then.
