For some reason
5.05-7 (although this thread suggests there is a 5.08-6 (RC) ).
If you are adventurous, you can poke around
and find 5.08-6…. even 5.11-1.

have been surprised by the extremely small number of compromises that I’ve had to make after installing Windows 7. One of the more painful for myself however is the problem with support for my laptop’s internal WWAN card which is based on the Qualcomm Gobi chipset. It looks like this chipset is used on some HP laptops as well as my Lenovo Thinkpad (W500) and my Boss’ X301 for both Verizon and/or AT&T. This chipset is new from Qualcomm and is supposedly a global radio supporting any provider on both CDMA and GSM by using a dynamic firmware capability.
During the time of the Windows 7 beta and now the recent RC1 there have been some rumblings from people that need this support to be able to use Windows 7 full-time. Reading through the posts and trying to get this to work I’ve found there to be two blocking issues getting this card to work, the first is getting the drivers to install on Windows 7, and the second is getting the dynamic firmware to load onto the card.

Official word just arrived this morning of Dell's Latitude XT sucessor, the Latitude XT2, and Laptop Magazine's already spent some quality time with the tablet. They note the XT2's aesthetic similarity to the previous model, but point out a few standout upgrades, most notably the 12.1-inch LED backlit capacitive touch-screen, which they say is significantly brighter than the last iteration, and the up to 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo ULV SU9400 CPU (with a Montevina chipset). They also point out that the finger navigations are “smooth as butter” — but hit the read link for full details and video of the tablet in action. The Latitude XT2 is going to have a starting price of $2,399.
