T400s: Qualcomm GOBI Mobile BroadBand Option?

2010-03-19, 17:18 PM

Hi,

 

Does anyone know:

1). If the Qualcomm GOBI Mobile BroadBand Option (Part number: 57Y4485) is a Gobi 1000 or 2000? I'm guessing it's a Gobi 1000, as there is another module for the 410s that says "Gobi 200"

2). Will the ThinkPad GOBI 2000 Broadband Option (Part number: 78Y1399) work in a T400s? This is compatible with the T410s.

2). Are either self installable?

thanks,

RocketDude

Bump

 

Would also like to know if the 78Y1399 would work in a T400/500 series notebook, as the 57Y4485 is EOL.

Hi, I purchased the Gobi 1000 for my T400s and installed it myself.  I bought mine from CDW and I think it cost me about $140 and change (don't recall for sure, however).

 

On my 400s, the install was fairly straightforward because there's a single screw panel on the bottom for accessing RAM, wi-fi and WWAN cards.  You must be very patient while installing the card, though, because you don't want to inadvertently break any of the wires for the WWAN or wi-fi cards.

 

One final thought for you: If you're a Verizon Wireless subscriber and can hold out until the end of 2010, you may want to consider waiting until then because - as I understand it - Gobi is planning to release a built-in card that will also pick up VzW's new LTE service - their version of 4G. I do not, however, know whether the current antenna set-up in our ThinkPads will be LTE-capable.

 

Good luck!
