Vodafone is reportedly close to launching a Mac version of its Mobile Connect 3G/GPRS data card, allowing UK Mac users easy access to its 3G network.

A report on ZDNet claims the mobile telco is beta-testing the new device. Vodafone declined to offer a launch date or initial price for the new device.

"According to sources the software has had to be given a substantial overhaul for the Mac," the report says.
