I thought PDA's such as Handspring's older Palm are incapable of high speed internet access via wireless.  Or is this a fact only for cell phones?  The Linksys WCF11 card for PDA's claims to provide high speed broadband access.

The two technologies are quite different.  Digital cell-phones connect via their cells.  This is essentially operating as if you were connecting your PC through a modem and phone line.  The data rates are typically limited to somewhere around 14Kbps to 28Kbps.  The WFC11 card is an 802.11b wireless protocol.  It operates at around 2.4GHz talking directly to a wireless access point.  These devices can communicate at speeds up to 11Mbps -- although 2Mbps is more typical.
