Apple WWAN Support Update 1.0 Released


As I was Twittering, Software Update popped up and notified me that there is a WWAN Support Update available. What does this mean? Since I am posting from a MacBook Pro, it means that Apple is adding support in OS X for even more cards for hopping online. Included are a bunch of Novatel products, like the Novatel Merlin XU870 ExpressCard (HSDPA) for Cingular, and the V740 ExpressCard for Verizon that supports EVDO Rev. A. The full message is below:

The WWAN Support Update v1.0 provides SW support for the following WWAN products:

Available on the Cingular network:

  • Novatel Merlin XU870 ExpressCard (HSDPA)

Available on the Sprint network:

  • Novatel Wireless Merlin EX720 Express Card (EVDO Rev. A)
  • Novatel Wireless Ovation U720 USB Modem (USB Adapter, EVDO Rev. A)

Available on the Verizon network:

  • Novatel XV620 ExpressCard (EVDO Rev. 0)
  • Novatel V740 ExpressCard (EVDO Rev. A)
  • Novatel Wireless Ovation U720 (USB Adapter, EVDO Rev. A)

If you’re on a Mac notebook, rev up Software Update for the download.

Damn - I sure wish Cingular would release a USB HSDPA modem. My 8525 works over bluetooth, but it drains the battery on both devices faster than I would like.
