    2 in 1? More like just 1 with an adaptor. Several (most?) express slot cards for Sprint have had those for a while. Nice little marketing gimmick they tried with it, though.

    Typically, the PC Card adapter is sold separately for much more. And, some times, it isn’t really as portable as you’d like. A lot of the adapters are flimsy, some even have driver issues.

    Selling them as a pair makes sense… it’s a bit more than a marketing gimmick, more like a product enhancement.

    Yeah I agree. Most of the express card aircards I’ve been selling come with the PCMCIA adapter for a while. Not sure why this is a big deal now.

    They need to come with USB adapters too.

    Does anybody know major any Brick&Mortars carrying express card / PCMCIA adapters? ( Sharp built in DVR w/PCMCIA slot)

    Thank You
