Thinkpad X1 Yoga WWAN

Are the current models for sale on the Lenovo web site "WWAN Ready"? By that I mean do they include the SIM card slot and WWAN antenna and are just missing the WWAN modem card? I am interesed in buying one now and then adding the WWAN card later. Thank you.

HP and Dell included, finding a Skylake convertible with WWAN is like pulling teeth right now...

 

What's the deal guys?

No. They are not. They include a SIM card reader but no WWAN antennas or WWAN card.

So I understand that the X1 Yoga don't come ready to just buy a SIM card and get service. What do I do to get that going and what provider should I get the SIM with?

You need to order the X1 Yoga with the WWAN card. It is now available as an option when ordering a system on the Lenovo web site.

No. You could return the one you already ordered and order a new one with WWAN.

Good day.

 

Alternatively, you could source the WWAN card, which appears to be FRU P/N: 00JT542 (Wireless,CMB,SIE,EM7455) as listed in the FRU parts listing: https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/x1yoga_frubom_20160107.pdf and install it yourself once you get the machine.

 

Searching the P/N at: http://www-304.ibm.com/shop/americas/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/default/PromotionDisplay?promoName=pa... currently shows 5/2/2016 for availability.

 

Regards.

I would confirm that with Lenovo. My understanding is that the system does not include the internal WWAN antennas unless it is ordered with the WWAN card.
