Problems With Verizon 1xEV-DO WWAN

For the X60 there are not many standard models that come with this interface. Typically it is available with models offered in the employee discount page, or for corporate customers.

When I purchased my X60, there was no mention of the EVDO interface on the Lenovo site but the WWAN antenna on my LCD display lead me to believe that I could install an EVDO interface if I were to get my hands on one. I did, from ebay (it was a Lenovo branded MC5720 Sierra wireless card infact), but when it came time to install the device I found that my mode 1709-CTO lacks the Mini PCI Express header needed to install the EVDO interface.

I will post pictures soon enough.
