I would go ahead and order the one with WWAN, in the extreme case that you want to use a different provider there are several posts here describing the type of card and service that goes along with it. If I had known that mine did not include the WWAN parts to even use a WWAN card then I would of waited until I found one that did. It was a long wait to get the needed parts ( mostly waiting on me) and then the very tedious soldering to get them installed. The experience was worth it to me, But may not be to someone who is unfamiliar with soldering would want to attempt.
STEC 8 gig SSD
RAM 2Gig 800Mhz.
WWAN parts in place
Fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
Gigabyte b,g & n WiFi card that works
Sony DVD ROM/CD burner in slimline external case
Planned upgrades; 16 gig STEC SSD, Internal Bluetooth and Black Lid

I'm interested to find out similar.
I can only find one supplier of a Mini 9 with built in broadband and that is from PC World but it's Â£342.53 which is really expensive considering some of the US offers at the moment.
Anyone found anything cheaper without locking into a "free" one from Vodaphone?

Cheapest place to buy is Dell.
Yes there are some additional cables, 2 extra wires that follow the same route as the antenna for the wireless, no soldering necessary.
