Will the T510 WWAN card (Gobi 2000 3G with GPS -FRU 60Y3183)work in T520?



I was wondering if the T510 card, a Gobi 2000 3G with GPS (FRU 60Y3183) can work on the T520.


The  Gobi 2000 3G with GPS (FRU 60Y3183) card is not on the T520 BIOS whitelist and hence, will not work.


WWAN cards and the system platform need to be type approved together as a system by all the relevant national Radio Frequency compliance authorities, so the approvals are only sought for the current generation of WWAN cards at the time the system platform is released.
