    PPC6600 SD/IO slot - BACKWARDS???!!

    Is it just me, or is the SD/IO slot for the PPC6600 backwards? I have to insert the card, with the back of the SD card facing the screen!! Not that it matters, but just curious!!

    Thanks,

    Yeah, that was one of the things that irritated me with the Treo 600 was the backwards SD slot... I was surprised that it was also backwards on the xv6600.

    since the phone slides up the slot had to be placed in the phone that way for logistic reasons...

    Actually, the SD card is normal. HTC accidentally reversed the screen and battery positions.

    What Marctronixx said.
    While the Treo had no real reason to have it face the back, the Audiovox needs to have it face the back so that you don't pull any SDIO cards out when sliding the screen up.

    Of course, for all of those that don't use the keyboard, I guess this is just another aggravation.

    I must have missed something. Why is it an aggravation?

    perhaps some people dont like having to flip the card around, whic is why he suggested that. if it doesnt pose a problem for you then great! i see no problem in it personally...

    If you need to see the lights on it (ie, SDIO WiFi, or SDIO GPS). I can turn it around fairly quickly, but it must have irked someone to start this thread, and I have heard complaints about that design on the Treo.
