New 3 GB CompactFlash cards from Pretec

This is kind of off topic for this forum, but cool nevertheless.  Pretec has announced the availability of 3 Gigabyte CompactFlash cards.  Imagine putting one of THOSE in your PDA or digital camera!

Off Topic? Amiga Anywhere is sold on these babies... This could potential enhance the technology in PDA's, making them more usable + more marketable.

IF that happens, Amiga Inc and Hyperion are already there to catch that market, by useing AmigaDE, Warp3D enginens

3 Gigabyte card, in testing batches are $2500 each.  They have not reached quantity release yet, and keep in mind that it's up to the device to support the card.  

All current PDA's and digicams that I am aware of have anywhere between a 128mb and 1 Gigabyte limitation on card size.
