World's smallest Ethernet card for Win CE handhelds

Socket Communications claims to have developed the world's smallest commercially available Ethernet card, for use for Windows CE-based Palm-size PCs.

In the CompactFlash form factor, the Low Power Ethernet Card has "less surface area than a book of matches", according to Felix Wong from distributors Advanced Portable Technologies.

"Over-the-cable data transfer rate for the LP-E Card is 10 megabits per second -- 500 times faster than a Palm-size PC's serial port," according to Wong.

The card is also claimed to be energy efficient, requiring 60 milliwatts to operate; a typical PC Card uses 10 to 20 times more power.

Socket aims to transfer the low power technology to its PC Card version, and release further I/O devices in the CoompactFlash form factor.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
