Apple_logoIf your MacBook or MacBook Pro glides through the ether using a 3G modem, make sure you check out the Apple support site: they posted a software update for WWAN users yesterday according to Infinite Loop. Here’s a rundown of what hardware / network is affected:

Cingular customers:
•Novatel Merlin XU870 ExpressCard (HSDPA)

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

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

  1. I’ve had the Novatel Ovation U720 from Sprint working on my MacBook Pro for a couple months, but it required initializing it on a PC and then a type of hack job to get it to work so it is great to see some official support now available. EV-DO Rev. A is awesome and hopefully I can now use the Sprint location-based features on my MacBook Pro and will have to give that a try.
