Well time toI don't think finding space for one part is "working wonders". If I were wanting him to add a laundry list of things, then I'd totally agree with you.
- two additonal shoulder buttons, they may not be big, but require a big "keep out" area to get them mechanically stable
- 3G Chip + connectors for Antennas
- MicroHDMI out
- a big bunch of additional wires to connect that all
For me that is already a rather big list in terms of board design, your milage may vary of course,
Yes there are parts under there, but with the "stacked" solution you will have something that is a lot larger (height wise) than any of the other parts: thickness of the SD-Card, thickness of the Sim-Card, thickness of the mechanical parts to keep everything together.I was under the impression that there was already stuff under the battery on the Pandora PCB. (Just not exposed) Am I wrong? If I'm not, then how would something being under the battery on the Pyra PCB increase its thickness beyond what the parts under the Pandora battery did?
As the battery compartment of the Pandora is a little bigger than the battery, maybe the height of the compartment could be made smaller and the battery contacts could be "raised" a little from the pcb surface to keep good contact in order to get more room between pcb surface and battery compartment - so Grenchs solution may fit after all > dunno.
Edit: Sorry, hit the wrong button, reply to the first "paragraph" expanded
