i'm in mid tour, biking across canada and i have a fully usb, self sustaining power set up. i preordered the playbook because it was suppose to be awesome, but now i can't put an sd card in it, and somehow it apparently doesn't have host data support.
next i try eye-fi because the playbook is getting, at some point... an android app for eye-fi that should work and if it doesn't i'll lose my mind... anyways i have an olmypus tough 3000 but it isn't compatable with eye-fi. also, i can't find a waterproof camera that is eye-fi compatible and charges via the usb. (i know, as if i should have to ask...)
can anybody offer some insight?

Drew, wow, biking across the continent, that's a feat!
I'm not sure of your question here... no the Playbook is not a MiFi device or hotspot, and there was never any news that it might include a media card port. The Playbook is pretty darn awesome, but doesn't seem to be thing you need on this trip. The camera and vid camera on the device itself is very awesome, you can use it and upload images to a site via email if you need.

the question is, are there any waterproof cameras out there that support eye-fi and charge via usb.
also, will the eye-fi android app work with the playbook.
i wanted got the playbook for it's size and hardware, wanting to use it for reading, to sort pictures from my camera and edit videos without access to internet.

Will the Android eye-fi app work with the Playbook? Yes. You'll have to sideload it though. Here's a message thread:

I have done this and can only make it work when in my home network.
I cannot for the life of me get direct mode to work. I wasted £40 on a Eye-Fi SD card
