It would be nice to have an enclosed device rather than a bare PCB. Let's review that option for v2 hardware.

A modern cell phone case or a small wallet attachment to the back of a phone case may be useful for collecting samples during normal use. It would allow for regular phone use with stand alone SIMtrace2 monitoring all SIM traffic. It could also allow for easy access to the USB port for real time analysis or power while the phone is in normal use. An example of a case that might fit if designed for the proper size of the board might be a "Vofolen Impact Resistant Protective Shell" or similar. It does not have access lines for a sim shim cable or usb and this would be an additional design consideration.

tsaitgaist : did you check those enclosures (links above), do you already have preferred candidates?
I ask because of the overall PCB space and whether we need or want to have any mounting holes.
