Default Internal USB ports - 04-10-2010, 03:34 PM

Hi anyone found any internal USB ports good for mods on the mini 1012?

I wonder if we can tap onto the USB ports on the miniPCI-e slots.
But i think someone was mentioning that the miniPCI-e slots are disabled if you didn't buy a mini 1012 that came with the HD card of a internal 3G WWAN

another possible means is to look at the internal bluetooth, anyone have any ideas whether Dell's internal bluetooth runs via USB? if so we might be able to tap the USB leads for the internal bluetooh, install a mini usb hub and put in usb WWAN cards into the insides of our mini 1012.
