1 year agoChelsea, there are some really good GLCD displays available from China, HK etc. that are really good value for money. For example a 3.2" LCD combined with a MEGA2560 can be bought for about £12.00....
3 years agoWow, great project! May I ask how much it costed you, not in time but in parts? Thanks!
3 years agoGreat Blog Andrew ,
Love the idea of an open source mobile phone.
It opens up other possibilities for use in projects which would not be practical with commercial products.
3 years agoThe IMEI is in the GSM module, which simply presents a serial port over which Hayes AT commands are sent to and from the ATmega (as is the case with many phones). The module also has pins for audio in/out,...
