Thinkpad T510 WiMAX vs WWAN

2011-09-13, 16:36 PM

My thinkpad T510 is equipped with WiMAX so do I need additional antenna to access WWAN ? or just buy wwan gobi card from Lenovo and insert it in the slot. The slot I have has already a SIM card slot. 

thank you for your help

the WIMAX shares the antenna with WLAN card (since they are physically the same card), while WWAN uses another two antenna set.
