Chrysler to Offer Wireless Internet Access in Its Cars

Chrysler is looking to pick up its sagging sales by being the first to offer in-car Internet access in the U.S. Later this year, an unspecified mobile broadband (read: cellular data) radio will be offered as an option on Chrysler vehicles, with the goal of making it standard on all of the company's cars down the road. A Wi-Fi router will be installed in the new cars to allow any Wi-Fi-enabled device in the vehicle to take advantage of the connection. That means no wasting your cell phone battery or messing with add-on cards to get your laptop online from the road. You'd simply connect to the car's Wi-Fi like you would your home network.
