The system uses existing USB 3G modems â€” the kind you plug into your computer for mobile broadband â€” to power the vehicleâ€™s Wi-Fi hotspot. Plugging the modem into the vehicleâ€™s USB port creates a secure connection thatâ€™s broadcast throughout the car.
Soo, they linked a USB 3G modem to a WiFi router... that's it?
Big deal. I bet the next version of the Apple Airport can do that as well.
I'm quite surprised any other company did not thought of this.
Why not use any kind of USB communication in a WiFi Router? 3G, other WiFi, bluetooth, lan, etc.
Even better: Why not build a SIM 3G/HSDPA/UMTS and Bluetooh functionality directly inside a WiFi router with some lan ports as well. Make it battery powered (solar?) and you got the ultimate mobile wireless thingy.
