So, 3G is easily possible on the Eee. Just need to find a way to connect my smartphone to it for true mobile browsing. “I just nipped down to the 3 shop and picked up a Huawei USB 3G modem.

This could not have been any easier, and will work with any provider using the Huawei E220 USB modem (Most).” More at STA.
