    PDA question

    I have an hp jornada 548, and I bought a compact flash wireless card from compusa for $60-$30 mail in rebate. I am wondering what type of performance can I expect? I dont plan on viewing heavy webpages, but more along the lines of chatting on aim, checking email accounts, and maybe post on OT :) while on campus in the wireless networked areas.

    Here's what it says in About:
    Processor: SHx SH3
    Memory: 31.86 MB
    M$ Windows CE version 3.0.9.9348 (Build 9357)

    I just want some input before I open this package and find out the hard way because compusa charges restocking fees:(

    I have an iPAQ 3835 and I got the PCMCIA sleeve and popped in a Linksys WPC11 PC card. I get standard wireless transfer speeds, and have no complaints. Very easy to setup, easy to configure, and awesome range.
