Just post any hardware you want to see here and we will start discussing it

Suggested so far:
RFID - So far it looks like a No on thi s one, most people wont use it and thier are better ways to implement it
CIR/FIR - its in and alwas has been, should have the extended range that people want for TV
Abient light detector - unkown, there is a posibility but using the camera would be a better option as it has these built in for auto compinsation
Person detector - not feasiable but alternetives exsist

we have vodaphone here in australia

the only thing i am really aiming for is compatability with the austrialian networks as that is all i have to test it with smile.gif

quick anyone remeber if wavecomm is open source friendly, 2.5g is alright however the definition of 2.5g is diffrent between some people, for me its gsm+gprs but wikipedia does mention EDGE in there as well

looks like those were modules, and there site is not what i would call friendly. it seems they are a large bulk only manufacturer

QUOTE
I still think that the integrated 3G modem is the best way to go. EVEN if we have to license a stack. This way we can do alot of stuff that we wouldn't be able to do otherwise. To use a module-based modem would mean that we'd have to have the iMX running all the time to wait for incoming calls. . . Chips like the MXC which are designed for it, take up alot less power. . .


not true at all, we can just wake the iMX up by an external interupt, if we are using the serial port then that should be built into the serial port hardware

modules are fine however they will add bulk and i then have to design around them rather than slapping everything in the best posible spot, from what i gather those moudles are huge but i assue its a perspective thing (and the fact i havent read the datasheet yet

With reguards to the LCD, I think we should be looking at widescreen (800x480) panels, such as the ones iRiver is using in their G10 in their hand held video players, as many people will undoubtably be using it for playing videos (and most are widescreen nowdays).
