pda and photography

I'm looking for a setup that would allow me to download images from my digial camera (Canon 10D) while on shoots to enable me to clear the card and store the images until I get back to my laptop. I've been leaning toward just getting an image tank but then found this article on how to "create" an image tank out of an ipaq pocket pc.

This option looks good to me but I thought I'd ask if anyone has done what Glass Lantern described or if there are any other ideas out there.

Thanks in advance!

Why go to all the trouble ? For extra storage, I would get extra CF cards for the Canon EOS 10D

I wonder if that is more trouble than its worth. Let me share what I have...

1. A VP2060 with 11 GB drive.

Very easy to use, two buttons. One turns it on and off. The other tells it to copy from the memory card to the hard disk.

2. What I may move to...

I just spotted 1 GB SD memory cards for 109 bucks. That's 4 times what I have now and will mean I may never fill my memory card on a few day outing.

More memory cards may be the cheap out, and my VP2060 is nice since it's not a PC or PDA which is a target for theft.

I'll probably be buying more CF cards anyway but since I only shoot in RAW mode I fill them up rather quickly and sometimes need to dump the images when I'm on location shooting. I was thinking about getting some kind of mp3 player that would handle the job or a pda. Since I want a pda and an mp3 player I really don't want to spend the money on an image tank too so I figured I try and figure out a way to combine them.

Then the iPOD or VP2060 or...

Another model from the VP2060 makers is also a MP3 player.
