Arduino Shield for PICs UPDATE #2

Still going with my plan to create my own Arduino type thing. Basically it will be a normal Dev Board with some features and shield/add-on/expansion capabilities. So far the board and schematic  of MAIN BOARD are 85% done in eagle. Just doing some R&D to determine what else to addon… So Far it has:

PIC18F26k20 (XLP PIC) 64 Mhz Tons of ram
FTDI UART to USB Connection for what ever you want. (bootloader or w/e) (might have DIP switch for controlling on/off)
ICSP HEADER
2 LEDs for Tx/Rx
2 USER LEDs on board
Power LED
3.3v or 5v switchable
Power from USB or Wall Adapter (9v)
1 POT for ADC.
RESET BUTTON

Remember this is bare board. This is always expandable via shields. First Shield will be Nokia 6610/6100 LCD with MicroSD card.
