I bought a Helix in May directly through a Lenovo gov/military sales rep to evaluate it for education and I am moderately happy with it. I want to add a cellular mobile capability and the Lenovo tech I spoke to said there is only an Ericson 3G option for the Helix. Anyone out there with a 4g LTE model? I thought there going to be a Gobi 4g LTE chip available.

My recollection is that there was a LTE model briefly available but this was withdrawn due to some compatibility problems (I don't know the exact details). There were rumours that these would be resolved with a new LTE model released around August 2013 but as far as I know this never happened.

The only issue I have had is the antenna lead became disconnected. This was a bit maddening as it seemed to be a driver issue. Other than that, I have had no issues with compatibility with either Win 8 or Win 8.1.

Can anyone confirm if the 3698-4uu Sierra EM770 above is the same card as the EM7700 Gobi Lenovo FRU 04W3784? I'm not finding many mentions of the EM770 on the web, but EM7700 seems to be quite common.
