To get ride of the ugly phallic looking 3g dongle sticking out of the back i decided to resolder the usb connector of the modem.

Looks quite good now, a bit like i backpack and it is way more stable.

Yea forgot to take pics of the building process. 

Well pcb is unchanged anyway,  the usb port has been cut of and the pins got replaced with cables going into the middle. 

Hardest part was to shorten the connector.

Its 3g, wlan sticks should be quite small these days. 

I intended to place it inside but this damn pcb is too big.  But hey it also includes an cardreader and i can use it to select the hinge ankle. Fine enough.  

Your antenna is looking great btw, if i had any use for it i would already have placed a big antenna in my pandora. I love big antennas...

This looks like it would get in the way when I am holding the Pandora.  Have you found your fingers hitting it?

It may look bigger than it is on the photos. No there is plenty  of space for my fingers.
