Re: SD Card for Toshiba E310 [Re: ]
      #3305 - 09/30/02 09:00 PM

You can use SD memory cards and the Toshiba bluetooth networking card in this slot.
You can store programs and files on this card to give you extra storage space.

In the SD slot on the Audiovox Thera, can I use the Toshiba SD Bluetooth card. If so, can this be part of a solution to connect my PDA to a home based ethernet network. Would greatly appreciate your response.
Thanks,
Suresh

Interesting question. Toshiba actually makes the Thera (though it's branded and marketed by Audiovox), so there's a chance that the BT card could work. Unfortunately, we don't have a Thera so we can't test it.
If you could get it to work, then you'd be able to ActiveSync to your desktop and surf the Net via your desktop's connection (Internet pass through connection).

You'll be limited by range with bluetooth. So that will be a problem, unless you are in the same room as your computer. WiFi has a much longer range, that is why it is so popular. Bluetooth is becoming very popular to connect with your cellphone (b/c it is in close proximity of you). There are even bluetooth headsets to go with your cellphone, so no wiring!

You'd be surpised: some of the BT devices that connect to desktops, such as the Belkin USB one I reviewed have considerable range. In a home environment, a 3970 iPAQ in the downstairs living room has no trouble getting a full signal and surfing the Net when connecting via the Belkin USB adapter plugged into a desktop PC in the upstairs study. The same was true using a Treo 90 with the Palm BT card.
BT Access points, such as the Pico, also have a range of about 100 feet! Though these puppies are still very pricey at around $600. With WiFi access points priced under $200, folks won't be switching to BT ones anytime soon [Roll Eyes]

No kidding? I thought BT range was like 25 feet at best.

Yeah, that's a problem with marketing. The first devices out (PDAs and cell phones) have low power radios with 25 - 30 foot range. Since the early days (not that BT is that old!), PDAs such as the iPAQ allow you to set the amount of power going to the radio which can greatly increase range.

More important than the client (a PDA in this case) is the power that a host can put out, such as a PC or access point. These don't have to be as stingy with power compared to PDAs or cell phones, so the radio output is higher. Even if the PDA has a short range, as long as the host is putting out a strong signal capable of reaching distances of 50 or 100 feet, then your PDA will be in host range and will work at those distances.

However, if you're connecting a PDA to a cell phone, you're still in the 25 foot ballpark (maybe a bit higher with the iPAQ on a high power setting).
