In addition, launch2net offers advanced statistic information on the time and data volume spent online and features convenient connection preferences like the ability to auto-connect or to disconnect after a certain time or data limit has been reached.

"To use the BlackBerry Storm as a modem with a Mac, it is sufficient to connect the smartphone via Bluetooth." states jan Fuellemann, PR spokesperson at nova media. "launch2net will do the rest and offers a mobile Internet connection for the Mac with up to 7.2 Mbits/s download speeds."
