The Gigabyte M912 has an ExpressCard slot, making it incredibly easy to slide a 3G modem or other peripheral into the netbook. But most ExpressCard wireless modems stick out pretty far from the case, making an ugly spectacle of themselves. Fortunately, jkkmobile is on the case. He’s posted a tutorial for adding an internal 3G card to a Gigabyte M912 netbook, complete with a bunch of photos.
Gigabyte actually left a slot in the computer for a 3G modem, but the functionality has been disabled. It’s likely Gigabyte will enable this feature if and when it strikes a deal with mobile carriers to distribute the netbook with a wireless service plan.
According to jkkmobile, it’s actually pretty easy to re-enable support for a 3G modem by throwing a piece of tape over one of the modem’s pins. Make sure to check out his full tutorial for all the details.
