Black pannel on the back

Postby Steveee-B » January 3rd, 2011, 4:08 pm

Anyone know what is behind the black pannel on the rear of the device? Wondered if it was a gateway to Narnia or anything interesting like that?

I wondered this myself... I'll get round to dismantling the thing soon, and post some pics.

The black panel on the back is a secret built-in 3G/GPRS antenna with a sim card slot underneath (i wish... lol).
Sorry, not sure, perhaps the Wi-Fi receiver?

I think it the Wifi antenna, rather like the antenna on an iPod Touch
