  • 4 starsWait for Palm devices with built-in Bluetooth if you can

    Wonder how long before it breaks? This card sticks out quite a bit (the part above the notches) when inserted into my m505 so I have to be careful when carrying the Palm in a bag, briefcase, backpack, etc. or remember to remove the card first. Other than the physical annoyance the software is not the simplest to set up and use, but then I've that to be the case with all Bluetooth devices.

    For the most part, however, I have been able to set it up to communicate with my SonyEricsson T68i and my computer with the Tecom Bluetooth dongle.

  • 5 starsLovely Product.

    When I first was introduced to bluetooth I found myself looking for bluetooth devices. The first one that came to mind was the Palm handheld. I decided to fork out the [money] and buy one of these cards for my Palm m505, and I don't regret it. The card is extremely small, and fits in my Palm carrying case.

    The card works well with MacOS X and my D-Link Bluetooth USB Adaptor. I can sync my m505 wireless using this bluetooth card, and better yet, I can be 30 feet away from my computer, I can sit on the couch and sync my m505.

    The card should also work with bluetooth compliant phones, this is another nice touch.

  • 2 starsAlas, not for Treo600

    Unfortunately, this device will not work with the palmOne Treo 600, despite the Product Specification sheet for the Treo 600's specific claim that its SDIO port could be used to support a bluetooth card... This is apparently because of an incompatibility between the Palm OS5 operating system used on the Treo600 and the palmOne bluetooth card.

    Beyond that, the form factor is "problematic" at best, as the "antenna" on the bluetooth card sticks out quite a bit from the edge of the phone.
