Re: Unicard - is it possible to get it?

Thanks, I found it at the same time I posted the the question ;)

And Dirty PCB price, it is not that cheap I am afraid, you have to put custom size 10.6 cm x 11.6 cm and it becomes $4...

Unicard - is it possible to get it?

Hello Sharp people,

I've been recently thinking about getting one of those beauties. Do any of you have idea if they are available from their creators?
