    same reason many other PCBs have seemingly unused contacts
    for debugging, re-flashing/re-programming (depending on type of media) etc..

    I'm pretty sure that's just the bare PCB. It's missing the FPGA, and the NAND chips are probably on the other side.

    EDIT: Man, I love being correct [​IMG]

    Older tech, requires older crap.

    I was on that site looking for stuff on the pokewalker thing, found my way to a disassembly of one.
