    It doesn't seem like a different design.

  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:31:07 PM
    The biggest challenge was adding cellular.

  • David Katzmaier 9/12/2017 5:32:14 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:32:15 PM
    That's a neat trick.
  • David Katzmaier 9/12/2017 5:32:27 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:32:35 PM
    The only difference is the crystal at the bottom is .25 mm bigger, he says.
