You may also notice that pretty much all of the G access points on the
market, with the exception of the G upgrade for Proxim AP-2000/2500
and Avaya AP-3, use MiniPCI. I guess it is possible that as these products
develop, they will become more integrated like the minitar/svec gear,
saving the cost of the interface.

As another seller of the Senao gear, I can confirm that they do have a
PCMCIA card in them, but they are in fact UBICOM, not samsung based.
