My hopes are still that we will persuade Option to open their docs (that 
one fits, including with wifi).  But a phone doesn't get very far 
without a GSM chip, so why not do what we can with the Telit - and 
replace it with the Option if our persuasion works out :-)

To kick that off, I've added the Telit symbol to dsv and our component 
library - and the expanded-pinouts sheet (on the i/o page).

It looks like it should be very simple to integrate - almost a drop in 
replacement for Calypso - though it would be good to get the symbol 
reviewed before pressing ahead with the schematics.

Yay for open documentation!
