Upgrade T420S??

I was wondering what the open slot was for (not the RAM) found under the T420S; it's excluded from the RAM slot but in the same comprtment. Anyone have an idea?

This is a mini-PCIe slot and serves two purposes:

 

- 3G UMTS HSDPA WWAN card (only if your T420s is WWAN prepared, look for blue and red cables that arrive close to the slot. If not present then not WWAN prepared)

 

- mSATA Solid State Disk, SATA2, currenly available in sizes 60-256Gb

You can an install a mSATA SSD as a second drive. mSATA is different from regular SATA SSD.
