I have an eeePC, and as of yesterday a new shiny Nokia E51 phone with
HSDPA. I got it connecting up this morning via the USB cable, but
couldn't get the Bluetooth connection (I think more of a problem with
the Bluetooth than anything else).

I'd still go for the 3G dongle. There may be lots of free wireless
around, but not as ubiquitous as you want it to be.
