I have a number of Thinkpad x131e notebook PCs and need to order a WWAN module for it. The only supported WWAN mPCI-e card listed is the Gobi 3000 MC8355 model, which is the slower 3G modem. Has anyone used the GOBI 4000 or 5000 series LTE modems?
I've seen posts about Lenovo whitelisting certain hardware, but I can't seem to find that list. Are there electrical limitations that would prevent Lenovo from whitelisting the LTE modems? If not, this type of hardware lock would be a deal breaker for any future Thinkpad orders for my company.
Hardware is Thinkpad x131e Type 3372
