What kind of WWAN module? The internal GTM 378 or some kind of Express Card/USB dongle?

Another user asked me about taking the laptop apart, I'll post part of the message I sent him:
myxal wrote:...I'll give you some tips to get you started:
  • don't remove any screws before it is necessary to do so
  • the first step/trick that didn't seem obvious to me and where any disassembly begins: remove the top part of the keyboard bezel (the part with power and wireless buttons) by doing the following:
    • open the lid almost all the way back (140°)
    • facing the keyboard, you need to lift the top left and right corners of the bezel segment; it helps if you have the right fingernails for this :wink:
    • facing the rear end of the laptop, press and lift the hinge covers - they are part of the bezel - make sure it doesn't snap back in place
    • this leaves about a dozen of smaller latches holding the bezel segment down: http://bayimg.com/aaMmKaABK ; I haven't figured out how to "safely" remove the bezel segment, but the plastic is quite robust and bend-tolerant, I just wiggle it until it becomes loose
  • from there, the disassembly is quite straightforward: remove keyboard, remove keyboard support plate/frame, ... <snip>

From here, you'll see an empty miniPCIe slot and a pair of antenna cables (red and yellow) secured by black tape (see photos below) - that's where you put the card - obviously, you are expected to also have screws to secure the card in place.

Just being curious - where did you buy the card? Fujitsu service? eBay? Or some other shop? I'm interested in this and I even posted a topic > viewtopic.php?f=94&t=36080
Please post about your experience ;)

Would the GTM 380 work ok in the U9210 or does it have to be the GTM 382? Thanks
