Telecom New Zealand's users seem to be ahead of the game now, since Sierra Wireless announced it has validated its current PC Card and embedded module product portfolio on Windows Vista. Windows Vista WHQL signed drivers are ready for all current Sierra Wireless EV-DO cards, including the AirCard 595, used by Telecom New Zealand (pictured below). You can find more on Sierra Wireless' site.
This is great news, because Telecom is introducing their CDMA EV-DO Rev A service here in Wellington on the 22nd February, so I will be able to use the AirCard 595 on my laptop running Vista.
Meanwhile Novatel still hasn't replied to my query through their support pages about availability of signed drivers for their HSDPA cards, used by Vodafone New Zealand. Vodafone New Zealand has announced their upcoming support for Windows Vista, with the required software for Windows Vista being available shortly, but with no specific date for signed drivers as required for Windows Vista 64 bits.
UPDATE: Vodafone has released drivers for Windows Vista (no 64 bit yet).
