NOVA media has released a new USB-based 3G modem for the Mac.
The Icon 225 costs US$156 and looks like a standard USB thumbdrive. When connected, it enables your Mac to communicate via 3G wireless data networks at up to 7.2 megabits per second download speed. It works via HSDPA, quad-band EDGE and GPRS networks.
Because it is not sim locked, it comes with a Launch2net, "wizard" software that helps users configure the modem for use in their country.
It includes connection settings for most mobile network providers worldwide and also provides connection statistics. µ
