Friedje, yes you are absolutely correct. The card arrived on Monday, last night I had an opportunity to open up my Duo and found out that I am basically out of luck on this one. The existing card is a short card, and from the photo's I have seen of the inside it looked like I could replace the existing card with the new one. Alas, that is not to be. There is a component on the board that would prevent the new card from laying flat to the system board and the memory is in a position that would prevent the card from being used in that slot. The position for the second pci-e connecter is unpopulated. It would have been nice if Dell had included the second connector which could not possibly have added more than a few cents to the production cost. The card I purchased has WIFI, bluetooth, GPS, 3G broadband and has the voice option unlocked. I may put it in the 1012 since it already has this card with some of the functions locked out.
