Default WWAN PCI-E Slot in mini 9 - 04-27-2010, 03:49 PM

I am intrested in installing a broadcom hd decoder card in my mini 9.
Under the cover I have an SSD in one PCI-E slot, the wireless card in another, and the WWAN slot has the contacts but no PCI-E connector.
So my question is: If I buy and solder on a PCI-E connector to the PCI-E contact for the WWAN, will I be able to install the broadcom decoder in there?

No. It is not a real MiniPCIe slot - it is wired for USB only.
