If you look closely at the 1st photo, you will see that the cradle there has an embedded antenna contact. Why? Well - you don't know, you american ignoramuses have never known this european quality product concept. Instead of checking our developments first, you latecomers in this field (GSM...), you again knew everything better yourselves, then logically enough designed inferior products. And our industry was insane enough to let themselves steamroller by your typical hype, thus drop their quality product formula, which has reached its temporary apex with the present 'smartphone' hysteria.
Of course, it could also be a political plot - american politicians didn't want the sovereign sheeple to have cutting-edge telecoms technology at their disposal, which a netbook over a 3G cell phone in a *real* carkit represents, and european politicians gladly followed their 'suggestions'.
