Interesting, I always wonder why they didn't consider some of the Broadcom chips for a loweend O2 replacement. Got any further details on this prototype?

Not really. Management weren't interested in it to begin with, but let it be built
anyway, pretty much designed single-handedly by Casey Leedom, using off the
shelf parts. It was killed off in the end, and then Casey left for Apple I think.

I don't have any detailed specs at all though, sorry.

Ian.
