My TPY 260 hasn't arrived yet I am just wondering if anyone here has tried this?
The WWAN card uses the same M.2 connector as the regular SSD except it is B-keyed which means it would only fit a SATA SSD. Since WWAN (LTE) is not even an option at the moment I would like to be able to make use of this slot if I can. It looks as if there is space for a 42mm length M.2 SSD which would be great for dual booting windows and linux.

I just put in a m.2 drive in. Brand name is MY DIITAL SSD. SUPER BOOT DRIVE. MDM242-SB-256.
On boot I got error message 1802 : unauthorized network card is plugged in. ... halted.
It wouldn't let me boot. The only way to get it working is to remove the card. I'm guessing the m.2 has a whitelist and the card i got isn't on it. maybe there are compatible m.2 cards out there but i don't have the time or $$$ to test.
any1 try this?

If you look closely, the WWAN connector slot does not have traces to the pins that your M.2 SSD has traces to. Even if you got around the white list, not all the pins would be connected.
This is really unfortunate too, because it would probably trivial for Lenovo to design the hardware for this optional usage.
