Lenovo Thinkpad Integrated Mobile Broadband Upgradable

I just ordered a new T400 Laptop from Lenovo.  I thought I was going to be getting an integrated wireless broadband card, but what it really is is Integrated Mobile Broadband Upgradable.  Their site defines it as:  

Lenovo recommends you configure your ThinkPad notebook with mobile broadband at time of purchase. However, select ThinkPad models are Integrated Mobile Broadband Upgradable. Integrated Mobile Broadband Upgradable systems have antennas built into the display and can be upgraded at a later time.

Does anyone have experience with this?  or know more about it?

This basically means that it has a connector on the underside of the laptop that you can install a wireless broadband card.  I'm guessing it was an optional extra at time of purchase and that one can be purchased later, and fitted yourself as the antenna's are already fitted.

Here is the option on Lenovo's UK site

I have looked on the US website and found this
