Hello All and Happy New Year!
Just joined up and have to admit that I don't have Mini 9 NOR do I have one on order - YET! However, I am in the research stage and it looks like the Mini 9 is on my short list, along with the Samsung NC10 and HP Mini 1000. I am also going to wait just a little longer to see what goodies are revealed at next weeks CES!!
However, I live in the Caribbean (Antigua, to be exact) and have to research the hell out of these things before I lay down my hard-earned cash, because it is a lot more difficult to return them from here than if I lived in the States!!
That being said, got a question that I can't seem to find a straight answer to:
Do ALL Mini 9's come with the WWAN SIM slot?
I am trying to find out exactly what I would need to do, were I to purchase a Mini 9 WITHOUT 3G activation, then went to my local carrier here in Antigua and signed up for their 3G Data package (3G is slowly being rolled out here in Antigua).
I have attempted to contact Dell's Latin America Sales Reps for clarification and they are clueless.
I can easily acquire a Mini 9 from the States and bring it in, but don't know if it would have the necessary hardware. I know that some Mini 9's have the slot for the SIM card, but no WWAN module, which I would have to buy & install myself. However, if there is no SIM slot, I would be up a creek without the proverbial paddle!!
Can anyone shed some light on this please?
