RFID tag readers/links

I was recently discussing a project with Dave Wanta to using RFID technology.  Here are some of the links I have gathered during the discussion to various products/SDK's:

The readers are more expensive (they are handhelds that you plug in to a base to sync it looks like)
But the cool part about these guys - in Q3 they're supposed to have a
Bluetooth enabled wireless reader - so no more syncing.
