Google Cr-48 Chrome notebook teardown

SIM card slot

The Cr-48 Chrome notebook comes with two years of free access to Verizon's 3G wireless network in the US. You'll get up to 100MB of data transfer each month and can purchase more without a contract.

Despite not needing a SIM card for Verizon's network, the Cr-48 Chrome notebook has one, and it's accessible from the battery compartment.
