I've been using Xircom for ages and I love their driver support, tech support and innovation! That's what makes me so surprised that these modems are so huge. The Thincom looks great (and compact) by comparison. I understand the Thincom will be flash upgradable to v.90 at some point.

I was happy to read they are working on a 802.11b wireless Ethernet Springboard module. I have been hoping for one of these for a while. If the jargon went past you, 802.11b is better know to us Mac users as AirPort.

The reason I went with a Visor...

This is the main reason that Ichose a Vixor. I liked the Palms, but this Springboard seemed like a great way to add flexibility. I sure hope that the support for Airport materializes soon, that wiuld be great. Has anybody else heard anything about this?
