    ok, my brother in law bought a new dell notebook. he wants to use his verizon cellular card in it (cardbus pcmcia), but can't because this notebook has an expresscard slot like the mac book pros do.

    i've seen a verizon certified expresscard cellular card, but it's about $160 through dell.

    so far i have not been able to find a convertor that will take card bus card and allow it to plug into an expresscard slot. one company is suppossedly working on this.
    i have also seen usb adapters for cardbus cards, but they are $250+
    i've seen a cardbus router that takes the cellular card and turns it into a wireless network, awesome idea, but it's like $300+
    ideas?
