Well C-Guys just (or is in the process of) died/got acquired so someone has to carry the torch for near-vaporware SDIO peripherals, right?


Is it just me or are we FINALLY seeing some encouraging signs of life from 3rd party firms after a VERY long and bland winter/fall?

Maybe a harbinger of new Treos to come this spring?

Vaporware, kind of 1999, eh? Someone missed a nap. C-Guys has a nice little business in Asia where RF is a bit ahead of states. I was at the Dallas show last week and saw the SDIO. Looked to me like for $110 it turns a Palm into a read / write scanner for e-commerce and few other things. Some other pretty slick app's at other companies as well.
