T490 and T590 SSD in WWAN slot?

2019-11-19, 12:31 PM

With the T480 and T580 models it was possible to add a M.2 SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 2 in the WWAN slot, mutually exclusive with WWAN.


Has this capability been removed for the T490 and T590 models?



The psref section concerning storage doesn't mention anything about the WWAN slot for the T490 and T590 models. But the psref for T480 and T580 does. Can someone confirm or dismiss if this means that the capability has been removed?

Solved! See the solution

Hello and welcome,


The information I have is that the capability to use the WWAN slot for an SSD is not available in those models.
