We perhaps will be most surprised how much a 3G modem will cost...

I don't own a 3G phone but a UMTS wireless card for my Mac.
My practical experience is:
a) in areas (urban) where you have HSDPA speed, you also have WiFi
b) in all other areas (more rural) your connection falls back to GPRS
So, a phone that combines GPRS and WiFi is a little more difficult to
to the correct network but has no dramatically worse connectivity than
2 months ago I had to run a VNC connection to my server back home
Slowly, but it worked.
Improving to 3G is therefore a "nice to have" for me. Not mandatory.
