From an earlier mail to the list:

     1GB maximum (due s3c2410)

I didn't verify that however.

Yes. More memory would certainly come in handy. In that respect I would prefer 
minisd or even full blown SD anyhow.

Personally, I have both on my must have list. I'm not willing to sacrifice 
either (tho I might go for it if there was some sort of tradein deal).

There is one issue with the microsd wifi however: Looking at the specs and 
comparing them to normal microsd Memory cards, I guess the spectec card is 
oversized (says it's 23mm whereas normal cards are about 15mm, just why the 
consider that to be microsd is not really clear to me).

If it was at all possible, a minisd slot would thus be vastly preferable. The 
Spectec minisd WLAN card even lists Linux v2.418 on samsung 2410 / 2440 as 
being supported!
