    The standard miniSD card is actually smaller than the size of the miniSD WiFi card.

    The Q9m has a miniSD card slot and came with a microSD adaptor that is the size of the standard miniSD.

    So as long as Spectec's microSD wifi card is the same size as a standard microSD (unlike their miniSD wifi) it won't stick out of the card slot.

    This is also relevent because if I can't shut the card bay door I'll have even more things hanging off my Q.

    That's my point . . . do you know if the micro SD wifi card is exactly the same size as a regular micro SD card, or is it like the mini SD wifi card and slightly longer than a standard card so that it would protrude from the slot?

    I guess we won't really know until they start selling it, which brings me back to my original question:

    When are they going to start selling the microSD card?

    I'd rather a miniSD sized one, with a slot built in to put a microSD(HC) card into so that it isn't just one or the other, personally. Sort of like a micro-> mini adapter with wifi built in.

    According to Spectec, they are releasing a miniSD wifi card with a microSD card slot soon.

    As for the card sticking out, it has to. That's how it picks up the signal.

    why does it need to stick out. just about every device made now has an internal antenna. my laptop, gps, cell phone all have internal antenna for picking up wireless signals. Its rediculous to think that it has to stick out the side. I remember that they once said that we would never have computers in our houses...impossible? I doubt it..

    vace makes a good point that I've been begging to prove. I'm thinking it's larger because there's larger circuit boards in it. If they can make a wifi card as small as the microSD (which according to the photo's on their site is the same dimensions as the typical microSD card) then they should be able to manufacture a miniWIFI that's the size of a typical miniSD.

    ionno, I'm confused and I wish motorola would release their own wifi devices so that I wouldn't be so worried about busting my phone.

    p.s. still waiting to hear back from the good people at Spectec.

    Micro sd on minisd adapter

    The thing is you insert the microsd making the pins going inside so there is a little part coming out the adapter when you put it in the moto q you can actually force the little door to fit in and close, but the main purporse for the card to have a little part outside is because that´s the antenna so it must not be covered.

    The best think to do is get the right part for the right component.
