Launch2net released

Nova Media today unveiled launch2net, a "wizard" designed to help users set up cellular connections via HSDPA, 3G UMTS, EDGE, or GPRS with a Mac and a compatible mobile phone or PC Data card. Launch2net offers support for Intel-based Macs, an integrated "Connect" button for quick connections to spare the use of the built-in internet connect program, and the first HSDPA support for Mac OS X, according to Nova Media. The software supports a variety of mobile phones and most PC Data cards, with more than 300 connection settings for networks around the globe. "Most network operators are not Mac-friendly and Mac customers are often rejected from the operators support centers. For these customers, this means a long and tedious search for settings and configurations," said Jan Fuellemann, spokesperson at Nova Media. "This is why we developed launch2net with automatic device and network detection and connection settings already included." The software features custom connection settings, and can display connection time as well as speed. Launch2net requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, and is priced at 75.
