    yup, say tata (bye bye) to TATA. They suck. Use Reliance instead, they r cheaper than Tata. Also they provide better speeds than Tata.

    Make sure you have a PCMCIA slot. Newer HP Pavilion comes with both PCMCIA and Expresscard slots. I couldnt find any info for the 5200tx. Express card is not backward compatible and as such there are no data card solutions from tata/reliance/EDGE based cards. So check before buying one. Moreover didnt you get the Reliance data card offer on the purchase of the HP laptop? The scheme is usually free data card on three months of freedom plan commitment (650Rs, 1Gb Data transfer). It turns out to be a costly affair getting the data card separately, I would prefer using a cellphone with datacable instead of a datacard.

    i don't know whether they are good or not, since i haven't used any of them, but this month's PCWorld Indian edition has given it the best buy option.

    Here is the review score:
    Score\Price\Warranty
    1. Tata Indicom Data 69 \ 6,495 \ 1 yr
    2. Hutch GlobeTrotter Edge 64 \ 8,000 \ 2 yrs
    3. Reliance Infocomm R-Connect 57 \ 6,500 \ 1 yr
