Inside near the very bottom there is a connecter with 40 pins on top
that with some work will fit inside the Poqet (though you'll only get
either the top or bottom row of pins). It is a little weird but for
someone who only wants to make a serial port for the Poqet it may be
easier than etching some PC board or soldering wires onto the pins.
