    You need to find out if your unit ships with the antenna. If not, you're out of luck.

    I always recommend the ZOOM PCMCIA Bluetooth card. This is a great soution and has a small enough profile that you can leave the card in, even when you pack up your tablet.

    well the reason im asking is that i might get a good deal on a gateway 2610 and i want to get the mogo mouse with it. now i gotta see if the gateway has 2pcmcia slots or one.

    does any know if there is enough space inside teh gateway housing for a mod to place a usb bluetooth adapter inside? im only asking this because i can get a really cheap deal on a cx2610 for about a grand and it only has one pcmcia slot and im planning on getting the mogo mouse for that slot so there's no place to put the zoom card in there.

    I think you should check with their tech support to see if you can add the internal card, that's your best path.

    The Mogo comes out soon, we'll be doing a review as soon as they get to production.

    from what i read on the other forums is that the techs they talk to said that there is no internal bluetooth antenna built in at all with the gateway tablets. i was just wondering if there are ways to mod it urself. like has anyone ever done a internal usb mod of some sort. like maybe rewire the usb port to point inside and add in a usb adapter of the sort.
