AFAIK most of T and X series have them but selected subset only is WWAN ready (have built-in antennas). You can use PSREF to get exact models.

Why? Can't you use a phone hotspot? Also with exceptipn of the newst ones, are 3G which is useless nowadays.

Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

I used to think that too, until I realized that my phone plan permits only 2GB/month of tethering or mobile hotspot. I don't think there are phone plans in the US that include unlimited tethering or hotspot. But on a SIM-equipped tablet such as my Microsoft Surface 3 or the Thinkpad 8 I used to have, I get unlimited cellular data from my plan.

Some 3G devices get HSPA+ from some networks, which is actually quite fast. 2G is useless however.
