Exclamation Got mine! - 12-10-2008, 05:28 PM

Hi guys,

just wanted to post that I am from Singapore and just bought a mini 9!
Got it from the airport as for some reason the dell website doesnt sell em here, and also the retailers here dont sell them equipped with 3G capability. ( They only bundle them with the mobile operators) For some reason the one at the airport had it! So i got that and tax free to boot!
White (wanted red) 8gb ssd, xp , 1gb ram, 3G, 0.3 mp camera

Set it up on the airplane , and started using it in Shanghai. Everything works fine, and managed to upgrade the ram to 2gb since ram here is dirt cheap and I found the guide here!

I was trying to find info about anyone using the 3G connectivity, but found none bar the ones about Vodafone.
Well Shanghai had no 3g connection, but once i touched down today, popped in the SIM card, launched the Ericsson Wireless manager. And it works like a charm!!! Beautiful stuff.
Am just a bit perplexed since the 3g card i have is not supposed to have a number attached to it!! But i can send text messages using the wireless manager!! Wierd! Anyway, if there is anyone in Singapore , would love it if someone could explain that to me.

Am using a starhub 3g Mobile broadband card, since it was given free together with my home broadband plan.
