AVR-T32U4 or yet another Arduino Leonardo derivate ready for breadboarding:

UNO is not designed to be low power with the components used in it
check Olimexino-328 uses real low power LDOs and can consume as low as few micro-ampers in power down when powered with the li-po battery, the schematic also have build-in automatic battery charger

and will be available for sale end of February

why not use microphone?
I've seen such implementation based on STM32 microcontroller look here

I have been tinkering with writing a Z80 emulator for the PIC32, but I certainly wouldn't even begin to think about doing it on something as (comparatively) weedy as a '328...

actually this is already done
Z80 simulator with tons of old floppy disks copied to SD card smiley
you can even run old TURBO PASCAL on it

10  Community / Products and Services / Re: Best prototyping shield kit? on: September 20, 2011, 01:59:28 pm
you can check also our proto shield
you have access to vcc and gnd near every pad
also it allows you to prototype with SMD ICs

best regards

I believe you will have to pay many hundreds of million euros to get GSM licensee and be allowed to make GSM network smiley

First project entry is already done: porting Android to SAM9-L9260

I'm sorry if it's not clear, but it's written on the web page that we do offer development board which to be used to complete the project.
No custom PCB prototypes, no sales of these projects afterward etc, all projects will be linked on this web page so there will be lot of exposure for the projects to the other peoples who are interested.
Please let me know if i can be of any further assistance if something else is not clear.
Note that this is idea in development i.e. many thing can change or develop further depend on the return feed back, but generally this was not decided with commercial realization in mind, i.e. peoples do open source projects anyway, we like this spirit and we want to help them with whatever we can. I wrote INTERESTING projects as I guess we will have lots of peoples who would like to blink LEDs with SAM9260 smiley you know what I mean... smiley

Custom PCBs and sales are something away from the first intention of this OSP initiative. I don't know how useful this would be for the peoples who make custom projects, as my experience says that one project go usually through many revisions until is done right and development board with processor and everything on it is more useful than one blank PCB.
