If a person is already carrying a laptop, carrying another matchbox
size device should not be such a big deal.
And apart from that if the person wants to be online continuously, you
phone will not be busy.
Secondly the usb/pcmcia device dont need batteries, so you don't need
to recharge them.
And finally the speeds/quality of connection varies from city to city
and the time of the day you are tying to access the net. So it will
be better if you specify where you are currently located.
As correctly said by Arun YMMV. :)
BTW I am using a Reliance Data Card (USB) (in Pune) and get speeds
from 3KBPS to 16KBPS.
