Hello Scott, I notice that you can get mini PCI-e cards that allow WWAN/HSDPA/3G connectivity. I assume in place of the WLAN card)

Is it possible to upgrade an WLAN only laptop with a WWAN card??
If I do will WLAN also be on the card (so is the card dual function?)

Do I need special antenna to be fitted in the screen? I can't find one with an antenna included.

Failing that is there a laptop with HSDPA built in you recommend?

I live in Blighty!

Yes, the most popular would be the Intel 6250.

Sure, but you'll want to be sure you have an internal WWAN antenna.

Then you aren't looking very hard. <g> Scott.
