launch2net 1.1.9 released

nova media today unveiled launch2net 1.1.9, adding support for new mobile phones from Nokia, Samsung and Siemens-BenQ and the new MacBook from Apple. launch2net is a "wizard" that helps users set up cellular connections via HSDPA, 3G UMTS, EDGE or GPRS through their Mac and a compatible mobile phone or PC Data card. The software supports many mobile phones and most PC Data cards and already includes more than 300 connection settings for HSDPA, UMTS, EDGE and GPRS networks around the globe, eliminating the need for complicated manual setup procedures of mobile Internet connections. Version 1.1.9 adds support for BenQ-Siemens EF81, Nokia N91, N71, E60 as well as Samsung SGH-D730, D600E, D800 mobile phones and includes compatibility with the new MacBook from Apple. Other features allow the use of custom connection settings, display of connection time and -speed, a connect button for instant connections and more.

"Configuration details are different for each mobile device and network operator," states Jan Fuellemann, PR spokesperson at nova media. "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. This is why we developed launch2net with automatic device and network detection and connection settings already included."

launch2net requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later and is compatible with PowerPC- and Intel-based Macs Computers. The software, available now for 75, is a free for existing launch2net users.
