That is correct Chak, available in Australia not in NZ.

My M1330 has the slot that is required but Dell won't sell it to the NZ market as they don't have the agreement with Vodafone here like they do elsewhere in the world.

Nothing to stop you buying the module on ebay and installing it yourself though - search for Dell 5520 or EU870D (It's a Novatel Wireless EU870D module)
