One other difference is the following:


"Frequency bands supported:



HWIC-3G-HSPA

• 850-, 1900-, and 2100-MHz WCDMA bands (HSUPA, HSDPA and UMTS)
• 850-, 900-, 1800-, 1900-MHz GSM bands (EDGE and GPRS)

HWIC-3G-HSPA-G

• 900-, 1900-, and 2100-MHz WCDMA bands (HSUPA, HSDPA and UMTS)
• 850-, 900-, 1800-, 1900-MHz GSM bands (EDGE and GPRS)
According to "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UMTS_frequency_bands#cite_note-0", the 900 band is used in Europe and the 850 band is used in the US.
As I am in Europe, the correct one would be "HWIC-3G-HSPA-G"?
