FYI, this device is supported in the backported 2.6.32 kernel.
I run this on a ThinkPad of mine, for exactly this reason.
Note that you will probably still have to *activate* the USB thing
(i.e. bind it to a phone number) on a commercial OS, but you
can *use* it in Linux.
At least, that was my experience with the Virgin "Broadband2Go"
service using the same device.
