Some time ago I looked up some internals of the device and found out that the WLAN board's manufacturer also offered a card with Bluetooth + WiFi on board. It has the same form factor as the builtin WiFi chip. This made me kind of angry: Why didn't iRex spend like $20 more and went for the one with Bluetooth on chip? This would have extended the iLiad's functionality by far... Oh, btw that would be a cool hardware mod too :-)

Edit: The Huawei E169 is an UMTS USB stick that would possibly fit inside the iLiads cover. I found
some pics from another guy who soldered that one into his netbook... Should I give it a try and buy one? Don't know...
