The San Francisco Chronicle reports that road warriors will soon be able to make their time in transit even more productive thanks to Autonet Mobile. The San Fran-based startup is bringing Wi-Fi connectivity to cars. The company’s Autonet Mobile Unit uses cell phone technology to create a hotspot in automobiles.
Passengers traveling in vehicles equipped with the unit, which will cost a cool $399 plus a $49 per month service charge, will be able to connect their laptops, mobile media players, some video game consoles, and Wi-Fi cameras and phones to the high-speed Internet. With the Autonet Mobile Unit, you’ll no longer need to stop at a Starbucks to get an Internet fix while on the road; you’ll be able to do so right from your rig.
