something generic, like 2GCellular and 3GCellular and then the GUI can sort
out whether it refers to it as "CDMA" in EN_us or "3G" in EN_gb or "UMTS" in
de.  The flipside is users doing a "CDMA wtf?" when they try to use their
cellular card.

HSDPA would be included in the 3GCellular name?  (it is 3.5 G and HSUPA is 3.75 G).

Logically, the speed is bigger in 3.5 than in 3G (one can see changing the modem lights from green to blue when a 3.5G connection is stablished).
