MicroSD WiFi with Linux support

I like Motorola A1200 too much, in fact I think it was the first Linux cell phone released at many countries. This cell phone has some drawback as missing WiFi and GPS support.

But at least the WiFi problem could be solved using this microSD card:

This microSD card uses a WiFi chip developed by a Japanese company called KeyStream. Hopefully this company was acquired by Renesas and it release it Linux driver as OpenSource:

I didn’t test it until now, but I am considering to buy one to test it on my A1200 cell phone.
