I would think an external PC card slot would be cumbersome to use with the Verizon card and kill any convenience factor the size and weight gave you in the first place.
I'm using the Verizon broadband card in a 700m with great results. I bought the 700m specifically to use with the service and ended up carrying the thing everywhere, it's a whole new world to have broadband at stoplights.
You can see the card in the lower left side of the computer. I use the Novatel V620 which has no flip up antenna. The antenna on the PC5520 and others can be a bit of a problem while trying to type. Get them to take a look at the 700m, it a great portable.
