Vodafone/Huawei HSDPA USB Modem on openSUSE 11.3

Actually, I do not need mobile modem for mobile browsing because I mainly use internet access at home or by using public hotspot, but sometimes I need it when traveling and there is no hotspot available. I bought Vodafone-Huawei USB/HSDPA mobile modem E270, detected as K-3565 on Windows machine.
The modem bundled with 3 GSM, local internet provider here in Indonesia. Price are about IDR 600.000,- , equivalent with  approximately US$ 60, with free access bonus for 3 month. The modem also provide modem driver for Windows but sadly without modem driver for Linux. But, surprise, modem has successfully detected and works out of the box on broadband mobile connection-KDE desktop environment on openSUSE 11.3. Even better, I do not need modemswitch application to change from USB disk to USB modem.

What I do simply using add Network Connection on mobile broadband network from plasma widget on the system tray (KNetwork manager), fill in some basic setting and then click connect button.
