Given the fairly good uptake on much slower data-only cards (DDI's
Air-H"), I'd think that if we get reasonably broad public 802.11
coverage, that could do quite well. In fact, I understand that we're
supposed to be getting combination 802.11/PHS cards soon.
I don't know how many of the cards are on computers and how many
are on PDAs, but I get the impression that the CF cards are selling
pretty well, and the recently introduced smart-card PHS access card is
certainly not meant for laptops.
