Chana Auto, otherwise known as Changan (that's their Benni Sports pictured), has entered into an alliance with China Mobile "to develop a smart vehicle based on 3G wireless technologies." In actuality, however, it sounds like it's not the vehicle that will be smart, but what you can do with it.

From Gasgoo's report, it sounds like Changan wants to put an iPhone on wheels. That "wireless communications package" will feature all the web content – and e-mail and videoconferencing – you've practically come to expect from a car. Beyond that, it will enable owners to perform functions remotely such as control and management of the car, diagnostics, positioning and tracking, and "technologies which emulate an office environment." Pretty soon, even in China, there'll be no such question as "Dude, where's my car?"
