Electrically, it's quite simple, hook up a processor to the usb port and to the required peripherals (3g radio/modem, io buttons or leds)...

the EXTREMELY DIFFICULT part is getting the software and design schematics for the 3g and usb right. THEN your computer needs to recognize it as a usb network interface device, which may or may not be easy depending on operating system.

Long story short, to make one (1), it would cost thousands of dollars. To make thousands, it would cost only a few dollars each.

The good news is, you can get them online for cheap now.
