Nova GlobeSurfer Icon2

Nova Media today unveiled a new USB modem for use on EDGE, GPRS, HSUPA and 3G UMTS compatible networks, allowing for up to 7.2Mbit per second. The GlobeSurfer ICON HSUPA functions on 850/1900/2100MHz HSUPA and UMTS networks, with 850/900/1800/1900Mhz functionality for EDGE and GPRS. Over 300 preset connections are included with Nova's Launch2net software, and features instant connectivity on a Mac. Nova Media's GlobeSurfer Icon HSUPA is currently shipping, and is available from the company's website for approximately $450.

The modem provides up to 220Kbit download speeds on EDGE networks, with up to 7.2Mbit on HSUPA connections; Nova Media notes that North American 850/1900 HSUPA networks will generate a slower speed connection that their European counterparts. GlobeSurfer Icon connects through USB, requiring no external power adapter, and comes with a USB extension cable so that it doesn't block available ports.
