So, based on your admittedly unscientific test, the real world performance of HSDPA is about the same as the theoretical performance of conventional UMTS.
That's a bit of a disappointment.

good to see speed is improving slowly, it's shame to see UMTS/HSDPA will still be somewhat slower than EVDO Rev A, but definitely a nice welcome for GSM users.
I don't mind getting CDMA EVDO Rev A device for data usage only.

HSDPA will make things a little more interesting, although I was just reading an article on the CDG site (http://www.cdg.org/technology/3g/resource/EV.DO.RevA.080706.pdf) and I personally am very excited about EVDO RevA and its performance, not to mention RevB/C.
