laptop without PCMCIA slot

I have a new Fujitsu Siemens laptop which has only got a new and 'better' express card slot. I need to use a T-Mobile 3G card in it; is there any kind of adapter, USB? which I can get for this. thanks, Ben

im not sure you see what i mean: i basically need to replicate a PCMCIA port, either by plugging an adapter into the expresscard slot or into the usb2.0 slot.

I got what you meant, just give you a wrong link :0)

Actually they seem quite rare and expensive. click here

An untidy solution but cheaper click here

hmm iv seen both of them before, i don't see why these should be so expensive

slightly changeing the question, do any uk networks provide a expresscard 3G solution?

I read something a while back about orange doing one, perhaps check their website out.
