Does the Enfora support 3G/HSDPA? Or does anyone know of a CF that is 3G?

Stock configuration... for now.
2 docking stations and three power connectors make me happy :)

Can't wait to hack & tweak this puppy :D

ENFORA is a GSM phone.. Can rmake and accept voice calls as well as for text or SMS messages. Internet access is thru GPRS. There is one CF slot with 3.5G but only exclusive in Japan and cannot be used to any other providers.. Im sure they will have soon....

Hello,
the same question - does anyone know where to buy those parts in Europe?
Not sure sony will ship them from US to Poland, not to mention our custom service :(

Yuu guys I think are better off to just get a Endora cell phone to plug in to the CF slot ... It will do everything the WWAn modem will .. plus you can use your UX as a cell phone

Hi Technogeek,

I just need to order the Enfora GSM/GPRS Compact Flash Card GSM0110 right?
or do I need to purchase any other part?

Regards,
TC :confused:

Stupid question: What's the part number for the dummy card? That's the only one I didn't see either here or on the other related threads.

(Let's hope I'm not going blind from reading the UX screen...)

Oh, and the CF reader itself, is that what's listed as COMPLETE FPC FPC-51(S) according to Sony?

"COMPLETE FPC FPC-51(S)" is the CF reader itself yes.

I could not find a part number for the CF dummy card ... but it's not really needed ... any CF dummy card should fit fine if you need one

Success! I got the parts in on Thursday, tore the system apart on Friday, and found a CF card for testing on Saturday. It's working perfectly.

(And since I carry a Cradlepoint router with me at all times, I don't even miss the EDGE card!)
