This is pretty cool: Autonet is launching a new service/gadget that provides seamless Internet connectivity as a hotspot in your car. I’m betting that they use cellular data, but they don’t say whose. I’ve contacted their PR person for more details.
Update: I spoke to Autonet’s PR representative, and they’re launching at CES. Avis will be renting gadgets in some markets, which is neat because you’ll be able to try the service; broad availability
to consumers will be “later in Q1”. I’m hoping to see a review unit sometime in late February; I’ll post updates here once I have a firmer date.
