Default WWAN area upgrades. - 03-08-2010, 04:57 AM

So I have a Dell Mini 9 camera/8GB/Bluetooth/1.3/2GB/Ubuntu 8.10

I was bored with it and I have done no mods so far, I was wondering about the big empty space where the WWAN card and slot should be. I have seen one mod involving soldering a card there but my question is can I just solder the expansion slot on to the board myself? It doesn't sound too complicated assuming I could get the part.

So quickly. What are the necessary parts? Are the necessary parts available? How difficult would this be? What bus would the port be? What are the odds my Mini will even recognize the port?

If I am repeating someone else I am sorry but I would appreciate if you left my post so I could at least check for the link to the appropriate thread.

TONS of project ideas here from custom mods to adding the missing connector.
This the site where many of them originally happened!

It only takes searching.

Or start with the sticky thread in this section on "summary of internal mods".
