I just got mine a few weeks back from a UK store www.saveonlaptops.co.uk (I'm in the UK btw), but when I enquired about the same thing, I was told it was a manufacturing option and no 3G (HSDPA) model has been announced just yet and probably won't be this side of 2009 :(

We get dongles from mobile providers here that I tend to use when I'm away from home, can you use one of those?

I would've loved one of these machines. Just a shame it cannot do YouTube HD video playback. According to users the video is very stuttery.
