Hi guys, I would have replied earlier but I'm very busy with my job. The 3G
module issue is interesting, and brings another point to the Mbed that has
a library for a USB 3G modem (
http://mbed.org/components/Vodafone-K3770-3G-Modem/). I don't really like
that solution, but it's interesting.
What is that SimpleConsole you're all talking about? I can't find any info
about it in previous mails or in fasttech website...
Mark, I'll be in HK/Shenzhen in April to attend this:
http://dangerousprototypes.com/hackercampshenzhen/about/ , if you want I'd
really like to meet you (and other devs from hk). Contact me in private if
you're interested!
