The models change so often that... what I know may be inaccurate. Some fault me for that, but I'm just a casual PDA programmer so that's about my level here.

Best of luck,

Maybe you can reveal why?

Why would one need all these interfaces?

I have hard disk device that takes all that, but no PC-Card or PCMCIA slot and is quite useful for copying out my digital camera content.

Thanks for the relpy. I want to use my GSM/PCMCIA card and a CF at the same time without carrying two expansion plus units.

Wow. I wonder if such a device is made too.

The CF interface is much of the same as what the pcmcia would offer so my bet is that your chat with HP will result in expansion packs again.

Now that you revealed about GSM, why would we need a CF slot?

And what can the GSM device be replaced with? Some bluetooth and a phone?

But while you partialy answered the question, it still remains... "What does it do?"
