- First contact Review by Juan
This would be my first contact with an Arduino therefore I can't say much regarding comparisons to other versions or different kind of equipment.
What I wanted to comment is that the presentation of this fine little piece of electronics is great, it comes in a nice little box with some stickers and a sort of brochure giving you thanks for supporting this open source prototyping platform. I liked very much the presentation and was not expecting that packaging.
I have programmed it already using some test code and it was very very easy to upload the code and test the device. (I used a Macbook pro with OS X 10.6.8) tried it with the quadband GPRS module and was able to connect to the internet with it as well as sending sms and making calls (no audio, just making the call then hanging it)
With some more time I might be able to contribute more in terms of reviews and code to the community but right now this is all that I can say. But in conclusion I'm very happy with my purchase, I recommend it.
