I'm not sure I care if it works with WinCE, but it would be nice to
know which one draws the least power. I think this is all included in
the specs for the cards, but some of the specs are hard to find. I've
found that most wireless cards, including CF cards, are around 250ma
which is pretty high. My Mobilepro 880 doesn't last long with a wired
10baseT card as it is.
