Re: When is the Helix release date?

All Helixes have at least 3g capability. U can read it in the specifications. 4g LTE is in NA only and needs to be specified in your order.

Are you kidding me? So e.g. the 3667U has 3G functionality? I thought only LTE models offer cellular service?!

No, not kidding you. Lenovo probably mad about me clarifying this.

I think you are correct...Helix models that listed with 4G LTE are higher pricing than standard Helix 36984SU/RU/QU/MU/LU. ==> those 5 models are NOT with either 3G nor 4G LTE...

Not true - check the PDF that was posted a bunch of pages back that lists all of the models. They either come with a GOBI4000 or no WWAN card at all. And none of the models that have been released so far come with the card.

 

I'm pretty sure that the card comes unlocked as every other laptop that comes with WWAN card is advertised as working with only one carrier but actually works with any carrier that uses the supported frequencies.

 

You can check the specs of the card here and see if the supported frequencies match your carrier.

 

I wonder if we can buy the card and install it ourselves. I'm guessing they're using a customized version to fit it in the Helix, but we'll have to wait until a model with the card is released.

I have 36984SU and can precisely tell u it has WWAN. I'm looking at the sim card slot now. Though it only supports 3g.

Every model has the SIM card slot. Not every model has a WWAN card.

Just because there is a sim slot that means NOTHING.  It just has a sim slot doesnt mean it has the WWAN card required for 3g or 4g connectivity
