on WinCE devices, and Novatell supplies a great
deal of documentation and specifications right on
their website.

According to this guy:

it looks like a normal modem. You can probably make it work with Modem Modifier. I'd suggest changing all of the init strings to 'APPP', as that seems to be the command to start communications.

Now, if this card could also use the 2x00's builtin speaker and mic to transform it into a cell phone, I'd drop my money in a second.
