OLIMEXINO-NANO-GSM shield is compatible with OLIMEXINO-NANO and adds Quad core GSM/GPRS capability. With this shield you can send and receive SMS, place and take phone calls, connect to http or ftp via GPRS.

In addition to GSM/GPRS module SIM800H also have Bluetooth 3.0+EDR and FM radio, which are also included as capability of this module. The GSM antenna is external for better range and reception, the Bluetooth antenna is printed on the PCB.

This module can be used with any of our other UEXT boards via jumper wires.

OLIMEXINO-NANO-GSM cost EUR 23 in single quantity.

Arduino library and demo code working with OLIMEXINO-NANO is provided.

    Very nice, that you can offer this at a useful price. Most solutions for tinkerers cost more. “Bluetooth included” makes this one extra nice. A module like this, but fitting for LIME or DuinoMite headers (i.e., without requiring ugly wiring), would be great to build a computer controllable from remote locations. Suitable plastic boxes would also be needed, lest the thing be bound to end up completely dusty in a dark corner as a provisional installation.

      LIME have USB-3G which does about same but faster
      Duinomite is old news, BASIC is dead, nobody than 40-50+ old geeks wants to learn and use it when there are sea of more powerful languages running on hardware with similar price🙂

        OK, I didn’t test it, but wouldn’t a Duinomite board consume less power than, say, RPi or LIME? Sure, you wouldn’t want to use BASIC (which indeed recently turned 50 years old) on it. Isn’t the good thing, that you don’t have to? Since GCC can compile for the architecure, you can use more sophisticated high-level languages than BASIC. Also, PIC32 should still be good for learning assembly for the regular MIPS instruction set.

        By the way, what is the status for PIC32-HMZ144, which you wrote about last year (https://olimex.wordpress.com/2013/12/11/do-you-have-enough-program-memory-for-your-next-pic-project/)? Also, cute boards like PIC32-PINGUINO-MICRO would appear to be a more powerful alternative to ATMEGA32U4-based boards, so that GSM/GPRS/BT control would make these even more attractive.
