Blueberry Pi?

Can the makers of the RPi add Bluetooth and an SDR chipset to the Pi please :-)

I would like a corner of the printboard formed as a can-opener - if I one day should get tired of the Pi (god forbid). :D

Joke aside - I think there is,23 (good) whishes for features, which all - more or less - would raise the price to a unaccepable level... (and this I have from the creators)...

Anyway - You can get allmost everything connected through the USB ports - even walk Your dog with the USB port (cable).

What he said about good ideas...

However...your proposed *name* for such a board is quite clever.

In practice, I suspect the next likely change to the Pi will be a move to 512MB RAM...which has the distinct advantage of not requiring a PCB change. All it takes is for the price of RAM PoP packages to drop to the point that the price can be held.

Pretty much all of the requested extras people want, except the extra RAM, can be done with simple piggy-back boards. And are more appropriate that way since they aren't things that really are needed for the Foundation's intended purpose.

So maybe talk to a circuit designer about creating a Blueberry piggy-back board.
