nova media aims to make 3G modems for the Mac even more useful with its new launch2net Premium. The Mac OS X-based application lets users share a 3G modem connection through their Mac via Wi-Fi.
launch2net Premium supports any number of devices over Wi-Fi, tracks devices that have previously connected so users don’t have to re-enter passwords, can manage SMS messages, and includes a one-button setup to turn your Mac into a Wi-Fi hotspot. The application can track 3G data activity by user, SIM card, and roaming or local service connection, too.
The application supports connections from any Wi-Fi capable device such as other computers, the iPhone and iPod touch, and iPads. It also supports WEP password protection to limit who accesses your shared network, and includes the ability to block specific devices via blacklisting, too.
launch2net Premium’s statistics
launch2net Premium supports 3G modems from Huawei, Option, Sierra Wireless, Novatel and Sony Ericsson, and ZTE support is on the way.
launch2net Premium will be available for download at the nova media Web site in the first week in May. Pricing information has not yet been announced.
