Chrysler Plans In-Car Web Access This Year

Chrysler wants to make the car stereo a WiFi port.  Perhaps now you can see why Microsoft and Google are so interested in the opportunities WhiteSpace offers?

Chrysler, the third-largest U.S. automaker, says it will be the first car company to provide in-car Internet access.

The feature will be added to existing vehicles by dealers beginning this year and later be installed on the assembly line, said Frank Klegon, Chrysler's product development chief.

The technology will allow passengers to search Web pages using signals from mobile phone towers. Consumers initially would need a subscription to a wireless phone carrier to ensure uninterrupted coverage.
