Dell Mini 9 Vodafone Configuration Dissected - 10-30-2008, 10:44 PM
I just got hold of a Dell Mini 9 from Vodafone, that's the deal in the UK which comes with an integrated 3G card for mobile broadband.
First thing we did was to pull it apart and see what additions it has. As you can see from the pics we went down to the motherboard to inspect the components and to see what free space there is, for potential modding opportunities we may have.
An obvious issue is the presence of the new WWAN card taking up the free space in the back compartment, aswell as using the USB lines which on other models, have been used for snug little mods.
[news-gallery:sn7i22wy][/news-gallery:sn7i22wy]We used the in-depth service manual to aid in the dissecting, it was extremely easy to pull apart and just as easy to put back together, there were lots of useful tabs for fiddly connectors and thankfully all the screws were the same.

Please excuse the dust, though I made sure the mini was pristine before it went back together!
