Was the deal between AT&T and T-Mobile worth it? Since the day, the word on acquisition became official, we have witnessed, quite a few new stuff arriving via the U.S. carrier, including T-Mobile G2X, T-Mobile G-Slate and the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G. T-Mobile at the CTIA trade show packed with some exciting product news, was announced as the official U.S. wireless carrier for the Audi 2012 luxury car lineup with the new “Audi Connect” system.
The Audi Connect services include Google Earth, Google Local Search and Sirius Traffic information integrated with Google Earth imagery. Moreover, the system gives users the access to obtain real-time news, weather update as well as picky information like nearby fuel prices. The gadget also has the feature to transform the vehicle into a secure Wi-Fi hotspot allowing passengers to browse around the information highway while the luxury car moves around on the physical highway.
John Horn at T-Mobile, told:
From our robust, nationwide network to our cutting-edge SIM technology, T-Mobile innovates so that customers can connect and access information from nearly anywhere. The Audi Connect service is a great example of how the vehicle ownership experience can be enhanced with wireless connectivity and we’re thrilled to be a part of it.
Sometime this April, the technology would come packed in the A7 while later on the Audi Connect would launch in models including A6, A8 and Q7, including the Q5 hybrid.
