Crazy idea #1: Remove GSM and even maybe GPS. Build an external bluetooth
enabled GSM+GPS radio and find an off-the-shelf plastic case (with belt
clip) big enough to fit the prefered (price, license, ...) modules.
Problem: can the processor wake up from bluetooth when a call comes in?

production but ok for a prototype. Some cheap cases:


Crazy idea #3: do both of the above. ;-)
