The new version of the SanDisk card that's compatible with both Pocket PCs and the Palm Zire 71 does work in the Tungsten E according to SanDisk. However the card's power requirements exceed the rating of the E's SD slot so it will void your warranty if you use the card with the E (and there's a chance it could blow out the slot).

Alvi,
Though the folks at SanDisk say they've used the card with no harm to the Tungsten E, they can't sell it for the E just in case the slot is blown by the power requirements of the card. So it could work just fine, but then again there is a chance it could ruin the SD slot over time.

That's posted in our review: http://www.pdabuyersguide.com/tips/sandisk_SD_wifi.htm

It's SDWSDB-000-A10M, according to SanDisk. It may take online retailers a while to update thier listing. For example, Amazon now lists the card as Pocket PC and Zire 71 compatible but still lists the old part number. Confusing! If you see the package in the store, it will say Zire 71 compatible, making it easier.

That's what the folks at SanDisk told me. I don't have an E handy to test it myself.

Super - thanks!
And, we are pretty sure that that card will work with the T-E (even though it might void the warranty and blow it up...?) But, in the end, it should work...?

Thanks =)
Considering the purchase...

Hi LisaG ,

I like to indication about the Enfora - WIRELESS LAW PORTIFOLIO, but the text say that The WP802b (WLN0103) works with the m100 series, m500 series, Zire 71, and all Tungsten models except the Tungsten-E????????

Does it works or not with Tungsten-E?
I am confuse!!!!!

Give me the light

It's the top listing, called the "mini-USB" model (I know, calling it the Tungsten E model would have been clearer).

Not possible, sorry. The PDA would need USB host and very few PDAs offer that. That means it can't use/host USB peripherals, it can only be a client to a computer.

Question: is it possible to connect a self powered USB hub to TE and a wireless adapter to the hub? it seems like that is what the endora is doing, minus the multi port usb hub, instead having the power going to the adapter directly.
