There are free drivers for Digi's xBees which are also 15.4 devices, I
don't know how much work would be needed to adapt these to atBen, if
it is at all useful or even possible :S

Cool :-)

Hmm I realize I need to do more research, I know it has a Micro SD
port, it's 8 pins and close to a centimeter wide so I figured it would
be 8:10 but I might have gone a little too fast here.

Thanks for your replies :)
