Re: my toshiba e740 is too slow

my pocket pc, which is one of the fastest and nicest on the market, has a CF slot... i never tried it but it would be WAAAYYY too slow to view a 4-5 meg file. it has a hard time with basic websites...

Just curious if anyone with a Pocket PC (Compaq, etc...) would mind
answering my question. I've just recently looked at the brochures
for the Leaf DP-67 which uses a Compaq Pocket PC and it's a great
idea. Though it looks like it connects through proprietary
software to the Leaf back, I wonder how feasible it is to use a
Pocket PC to read Canon images (.jpg's) and preview them. Don't
most new Pocket PC's have a CF slot? Can they read directly off
the slot like a hard-drive?

I found this software -
http://www.softspb.com/products/palbumpo/index.html - which appears
to address this solution, but doesn't answer any questions. I know
for my clients, this would be a godsend as most can't stand looking
at the mini screens on the back and a laptop is to unwieldy in the
field. The digital wallets also don't have a large enough screen
for the money.
