Nokia HS-4W wireless boom headset
The Nokia HS-4W wireless boom headset weighs only 21 grams and can be recharged with a normal Nokia mobile phone charger. Pairing with my PowerBook took just a few seconds, and now VoIP calls via Skype can be done without sitting in front of my Mac. I will try the Nokia HS-4W with mobile phones (Nokia 6630 and 7280, PalmOne Treo650) and PocketPCs (Fujitsu Siemens PocketLook 720) as soon as possible and will post my experiences here.

GSPDA Xplore M98 corrected details
The PalmSource website has some details about the upcoming GSPDA Xplore M98 PalmOS based mobile phone. Unfortunately, the stated specs are not correct, at least according to GSPDAs own literature on the Xplore M98. It states, that the external LCD will be 1.17", whereas it is 1,3", Li-Polymer battery is not 860mAh, but 850mAh, it has no external TransFlash Memory, but a normal SD/MMC slot, the size/weight is not 96.5 x 47 x 24 mm and 4.2 oz or 119 grams, but 95.6 x 46.8 x 23.9 mm and 3.6 oz or 102 grams. And besides the stated Tri Band 850/1800/1900 MHz there will also be a European/Asian version with 900/1800/1900 MHz. BTW: the M98 seems to have all the goodies I have been expecting of a great phone, but unfortunately, there will be no built in Bluetooth.

TransFlash will be SDmicro
The SD card organisation announced, that the new SDmicro flash memory standard will be basically identical to the current TransFlash cards from San Disk. As a matter of fact, TransFlash will be renamed to SDmicro. So in the future we will have just 2 flash memory formats of importance: CompactFlash, which can read nearly all smaller formats via adapters and SD, which is compatible to MMC, RS-MMC, SDmini and SDmicro (formerly TransFash). Now if somebody could develop an adapter to use MemorySticks and MemoryStickDuos in a SD lot...
