Hello Thomas Merkel,
it is not so easy to find a solution that fits in all situations and needs.
In shorter words, if you don´t need the HSPA modus, the Novatel EU850D with a
SIM slot soldered on the card perhaps will fit your needs. If the cellular
phone standards of your country will be supported by the card !!!!
Otherwise, Stuart Henderson was telling you the other two options with
adapters from DeLock, but if you are not sure, need the HSPA modus strictly,
the both mini pcie slots are in use with mSATA and/or WLAN cards and the PCIe
x1 slot is for an other card or in use, you have also the chance to have a
short look on the device at the link shown in the next line, it is an external
usb box to insert a mini pcie 3G/UMTS modem at your choice.
They have a discritption for the device also in english on there webside.
In another way if you need it cheeper, some ISP´s giving there customers an
usb stick (modem) with an internal sim slot. Perhaps you must have a look at
first that this modem is supported by the linux system of your selection.
Good luck for you ;)
