    I hate to do this when you've specified your requirement so clearly, but have you considered a USB dongle? They're typically cheaper and easier to get hold of. The Huawei E220 is probably the most popular, in the UK at least. Mine is on Vodafone and works like an absolute charm, great signal and great performance - plus you can always use a longer USB cable if you're in an area with bad signal.

    Plus, unlike an ExpressCard, you can ram a USB modem into pretty much anything should you ever need to, including the USB port on some routers!
