Wi-Fi SDIO Card for Palm interchangeable with Pocket PC?

Lately, I have been searching all of the local stores to find a WiFi SDIO card for my HP iPAQ 3955 PDA. This PDA runs Pocket PC. I've gone to CompUSA, Best Buy, Circuit City, Office Depot, Staples, and many others with no luck! They don't have any Wi-Fi SDIO cards for Pocket PC's. They do, however, all carry the PalmOne P10952U 802.11 Wi-Fi SDIO Card for Tungsten T3 and Zire 72. For some reason, they all have Wi-Fi SDIO cards for the Palm-based PDA's. Why is that?

Funny thing is that Office Depot and CompUSA both carry the AmbiCom WL11-SD 802.11B 11MBPS Sdio Card through Amazon. Yet, they don't have it at their local stores. Office Depot even carries an additional Socket S SDIO Wlan Card through Amazon. But again, it's not available at its local store. What I really want is the SanDisk Connect 256 MB + WiFi SD Card, except that it is no longer being stocked anywhere. Is this product being obsoleted? Makes me wonder what's going on with the Wi-Fi SDIO industry.

But anyway, back to hacking gears . . . so what is so different between say the PalmOne P10952U 802.11 Wi-Fi SDIO Card for Tungsten T3 and Zire 72 and the AmbiCom WL11-SD 802.11B 11MBPS Sdio Card? Why can't they operate interchangeable between a Palm and a Pocket PC? Or could they? Are the manufacturers just trying to throw the consumer off through labeling?
