No build in 3G modem/phone in the Asus 701.  There may/may not be a 
mini-PCI slot which there may be a 3G modem "Upgrade". Rumour has it 
that the White 7a series have the card slot and the 7b and Black 701's 
don't.  I would have to void the warranty to find out, don't expect me 
to take a screwdriver to mine in the next couple of weeks ;-)
