Aren't there going to be one or two RGB-backlit keyboard buttons?

WAN [1] According to WizardStan
According to gta04 sounds more official ;)
Thanks, I knew there was a more official source, but I was just too occupied otherwise to employ the forum search
It's SDXC, not SDHC slots.
D'OH, thanks
SIM card.
Isn't that kinda implicit from the cellular modem?

True, but I could not find/did not have any qoute from Ed in mind regarding that, so I figured I'll leave it out for now.
Can't miss this:  Replaceable SoC board :)
I don't know, while it sure is some kind of feature, this isn't meant as a sales advert, just trying to get a comprehensive list of official qoutes about the hardware features. that impact the user in a more 'direct' way.

First at all I've got some questions now:

According to the datasheet of the 3G module it gets bound to the SoC via USB, is that right? And there seems to be the option to use some kind of diversity mode, which would be great! Are we using that feature or is the planned antenna only a single antenna?

Also there was mentioned a "footprint for growing technologies like 4G". What does that mean?

To the topic: You forgot to mention the analog nubs and the serial console on the microUSB2 ;) and there will also be audio in (mic) on the jack.

I looked at both the PHS8 3G chip, and the PLS8 4G chip. The only difference in size is the 4G one is 0.3 millimeters thicker. Is that really enough size difference to make the 4G one not fit in the Pyra?

It's about price, not about size. I think the 4G one is about $100 more expensive or something.

Well, they should find out if some people are willing to pay it. I could swear it was size though. Didn't ED say the antenna was too big?
