I have good news for MacBook Pro users who are lamenting the loss of their PC Card slot and haven’t been able to connect to the Internet via EDGE and GPRS using their ExpressCard slot.
nova media today unveiled launch2net version 1.4.9 with support of the Novatel Merlin XU870 wireless ExpressCard modem. This ExpressCard allows mobile Internet connections with up to 3.6
Mbit/s in all HSPDA networks around the world as well as 3G UMTS, EDGE and GPRS connections.
Here’s what the PR person has to say…
“MacBook Pro users can finally use a wireless HSDPA ExpressCard modem”,
states Jan Fuellemann, PR spokesperson at nova media. “It is the most
convenient way to establish a mobile internet connection and MacBook Pro
users are not left in the dark any more.”
I haven’t tried this in my MacBook Pro yet, but I’m anxious to hear field reports from anyone that has. If it works, this could solve a lot of problems for me…
