    If you go to the Gateway Notebook homepage you will see the m-150 series which is essentialy the same as the T-1616 (intel though) In any case, then navigate to the support section for that model (M-150) and look up components, bluetooth module:Wa-La! we have various part numbers for what appear to be the same blutooth internal chip (foxconn) If you contact tech support, to try and purchase, they will send you to sales up-grade, the challenge is getting a rep that is able to comprehend what you are trying to buy! anyway after three tries I got a quote of 94 dollars GEEZ!
    Soooooooo I did not order it. If you look carefully at the picture on the "main view" page you will see that it is NOT minipci express. Go to the Dell website and look up "bluetooth module" easy to find, it looks to be the same part for $19.99 ! I have not done this yet, I believe there is a connector on the motherboard that accepts this module, the Dell website has instructions for their various models, but I have yet to Dissect my laptop, I have the P-6301 which is the 17" complement to the T-1616.
