Re: A475: adding 2nd SSD to the WWAN slot

There's no mention of secondary storage capability for the WWAN slot in the base spec:

For reference, here's the base spec of the T470 - the model discussed in the thread where you originally posted this:

 

http://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad%20T470/ThinkPad_T470_Platform_Specificatio...

 

That's not to say that it couldn't have been an undocumented feature, but it certainly looks like it is not supported in the A475.

Just looking at this laptop (as I just got one off ebay), page 77 of the maintenance manual suggests it should be possible.  Maybe with a firmware update or some setting in the BIOS?
