SIM slot?

Today I realized my beloved 10 year old Thinkpad X201 has a SIM slot and a GPS. I guess I have a full day ahead of visiting my cell store for a cheap SIM (the old style one, hope they have) and tinkering. This machine runs a few operating systems in VMs (Ubuntu is host) so testing some GPS and communication software will be fun.

Tetherless data and GPS 10 years ago would have been a cool-as-fuck tech to have.

Did I tell you my 201 is practically brand new with just a few cycles on the original battery? Still has the clear stickers all over. How is that possible, Matthew has no clue.

It’s crazy fast, too.
