RFBee wireless communication module (and development board!)

I bought this XBee pin compatible RF replacement module, called RFBee
For my surprise it turned out to have a programmable ATMega168. What a nice module! I'm loving it.
Once you learned that it has a ATMega168 you may be tempted to overwrite the firmware choosing any 168 board in your Arduino IDE. But beware that as stated in the manual it will only work with the "Arduino Pro or Pro Mini (3.3v, 8MHz) w/ATmega168" board. Even if it doesn't show any error messages you may experience malfunction if you chose another target.
