Just checking out noel leemings deals on the new XT netbooks and it appears that they are simply bundling a t-stick instead of an inbuilt module.

USB dongles are a pain, wonder why telecom aren't offering these netbooks with inbuilt modules .... strange

Just get a HP 5101 with built-in 3G. It's 850 MHz WCDMA.

This is a un2400 module is it not- and this is tricky, to say the least, to get working on XT:

It's not too tricky for the un2400 anymore as discussed in this thread adjacent to the one you mentioned:

it's essentially the same as tethering an XT or Vodafone phone. Instead of using the HP Connect software, setup a manual dial up networking connection(i've got the same thing on my Samsung phone with XT and my SE w760i)

Or if you really want an Acer Aspire one like at Noels, goto Playtech pickup the black slim for $599, make sure it's the D250 model as these have the secondary PCIe card built in. Buy a sierra WWAN that supports 850mhz WCDMA/HSPDA from Ebay for cheap. Unscrew the panel, pop in the card and it should be all good to go.
