WiFi Hits the Open Road

June 25, 2008

Today's LA Times has a story on Chrysler's latest bid to entice more customers to buy its vehicles. The automaker has announced it will offer wireless Internet as an option on all its 2009 models. So if you can't bear to be away from access to the World Wide Web for however long it takes to get from your home to your workplace, then Chrysler may just be the choice for you. The technology behind this offering is called UConnect Web. Uconnect Web uses cellular and WiFi technology to provide "instant access" to the Internet. According to officials at Chrysler, anyone in the car will be able to check e-mail, download music, play games and even upload photos. The new system will reportedly be competitive with laptop wireless cards, and customers will not be forced to sign up for long contracts.
