Yes, it is the TD028TTEC1 - the same as used in the
Freerunner. So if you don't own a Freerunner, you
can make the GTA04 useable with this display.

But there is no plastic case, no GSM/GPS antenna and
no speakers etc. provided (yet).

So you can use it only as a PDA or WiFi MID (without
sound/telephony). And, connecting the battery is
a little tricky (but possible).

The main idea to provide a display is that not everyone
wants to disassemble the freerunner core module
(PCB + Display) to easily swap both.
