nova media unveils Internet connect wizard launch2net for Intel- and PowerPC

first HSDPA support for Mac OS X

Berlin, Germany, April 20th — nova media today unveiled launch2net,
successor of Mobile High Speed. launch2net is a “wizard” that helps users
set up cellular connections via HSDPA, 3G UMTS, EDGE or GPRS through their
Mac and a compatible cell phone or PC Data card.

launch2net features support for Intel-Macs, an integrated “Connect” button
for fast and easy connections, sparing the use of the built-in Internet
Connect program, as well as the first HSDPA support for Mac OS X. 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.

“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.”

Other features allow the use of custom connection settings, display of
connection time and -speed and more.

launch2net requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or 10.4.x and is compatible to PowerPC
and Intel-Macintosh Computers. The software is available today for Euro
75,- plus VAT. Nova media offers upgrades for existing Mobile High Speed
