ARRIVED: EastGear's Wi-Fi SD card for Pocket PC

Following Helio's previous Spectec SDW-820 Wireless SD Card review and "vudu's" link in the forum, I went for the ODM version from EastGear Computer Devices because I was amazed from the size and I thought it might fits perfectly into my i-mate JAM.
Today, the package from Singapore arrived (EastGear handeled the order, payment and shipping pretty professional and they are using the same e-commerce system I use for the PPCW.Net Online Shop ;-)) via FedEx and I'm even more amazed how well it works with my device as well as how small the card is indeed.

Left a standard SD memory card, in the middle the EastGear Wi-Fi SD Card and right the SanDisk SD Wi-Fi card:

While the difference is already enormously, plugged into the i-mate JAM you can see the differences even better:

Because of its small footprint you can leave the card plugged-in and can still use a leather case like the PielFrama case for the HTC Magician.

I will post more experiences later but if you want to grab you card from EastGear also, you can get it for US$ 84.76 only (plus shipping) and they ship internationally also!
As it looks today and according Helio's previous review - worth the money!
Just a tip - if you are going for your card from EastGear also, don't install the driver from the CD-ROM because EastGear already released a updated version which is available from their website.

Cheers ~ Arne

I really like when I see these pictures that it makes me feel that it keeps the minimal size of the jam.

Why couldn't somone come out with something like this when I was walking around with an h3950 series iPAQ in an expansion sleeve with a big ole honking CF Wifi card sticking out of it. roll

Hey, I've started with a PCMCIA card jacket and PC card adapter for my Compaq iPAQ H3600... Okay, it's 5 years ago and I felt good that time but anyway - it was really bulky... wink

Ok,
I'll concede that one, but the CF expansion plus with the extended battery was no light-weight either wink
