    Does anyone know if the GN can use an external antenna?

    I do a lot of camping where there's barely any cell signal, and I'd be interested in finding an external antenna (especially a directional one) primarily to get reliable 3G for tethering.

    Thanks!

    Thanks, could be useful if/when it is released!

    Also, I think I found the answer myself. Found teardown pics at techrepublic and it's pretty clear that there's no external antenna port. You can see where the internal antenna is, and follow it back to where it connects to the system board.
