X1 Carbon NOW WITH GOBI 4000? LTE AT&T

It now looks like Lenovo is now only offering the Gobi 4000 AT&T version with

the new X1 Carbons. Just prior to launch they were listing the Ericson 3G card.

 

Anyone know if we can swap out the AT&T Gobi 4000 one for a Verizon Gobi? How about

the laptops that came with the Ericson, can we just replace the WAN card with

either Gobi 4000? Will the Bios not block any of these options? Is the antenna

setup the same?

Well this is very odd. The disassembly photos here clearly show it only supports a half height card.

I found this page which shows an Ericson card, but has GOBI 4000 listed under physical specs (with the model number for a full-size GOBI 4000).

Just chatted with a couple reps, who gave very different answers.  The first indicated it was just a naming change, the second indicated the Ericsson card was meant for non-US orders, and that the X1 Carbon with GOBI 4000 did support LTE (and that the product page needed updating).

 

I suspect the first rep was correct and that it doesn't support LTE, but we will see I guess.

'afternoon.

you can't even open up the X1C internals without technically voiding the warranty. this laptop has no CRUs, except the PSU.

 

just an fyi.

Looks like it was a mistake on their web site. Now it lists the Ericson 3G card

again instead of the gobi 4000
