T400 Verizon WWAN internal chipset

2008-09-01, 7:38 AM

Hi


I am thinking about buying a T400 laptop with WWAN PCIe card integrated on it. I am trying to find out details about the integrated Verizon mobile broadband (3G) option. In specific, I am looking for information on the chipset that it contains. I was wondering if someone could point me to a page which might have these details.

 

Thanks in advance.

All T400 are WWAN ready. All what you need is the Sim chip from the carrier. Search on Google for Thinkpad T400 verizon.

It's a Qualcomm chipset (all CDMA chips are designed by them afaik). Device manager says it's a 9202 (and is USB).

I believe these 3G modems all show up looking like serial ports to the OS, so there are relatively few driver hassles with them.

I did give up on the 'built in' Verizon connection app that came with the T400 and instead downloaded the regular connection

manager thing from Verizon. I'd used that on my previous laptop and it worked perfectly on the T400 with Vista.
