    Q and Wifi possible? ever?

    Howdy,
    Greatr site.
    I just purchased a Q and I am a huge Apple fan. I really like the Q but the signal in my house is so weak that I can not access the internet with the Q.

    My big question is this. Will a Wifi card be available for the Q so I can access the net when my phone signal is weak.

    Please say it is possible (if not now) some time soon.

    Regards,

    Boliver

    thank you

    Thanks for the detailed info Dennis. That blows. Hopefully Moto or someone who can hack can apply more voltage for the mini sdio card.

    I heard that the next wave of Q's will have this come early next year. I'd hate to be penalized for being an early adoptor.

    They're discussing this mini-wifi card on HoFo in the Alltel forum: http://www.spectec.com.tw/sdw825-moto.htm

    It says it's compatible with the Q9m, but doesn't mention the older Q.

    [Edit] Nevermind, I found this on another site: Not Compatible with (incomplete list): Motorola MPx220, Motorola Q (WM5 Smartphone), Audiovox SMT5600, and all Palm OS/BlackBerry/Symbian/Sony/ Nokia phones

    It does work

    It allows me to browse the web on my Q as long as it is plugged into a system with internet access...

    not wifi

    that's because the phone can use your computer's internet regardless of a data plan on your phone. so if you feel the need to be on the internet on the phone and you have your computer there too, then that's your choice. the computer would probably be a little better for that.

    You know it's not such a bad feature. I always recommend this to those who wishes to access the internet but can't because someone else is using the computer (ie siblings, friends, parents).
