OnStar relaunching this summer with mystery technology partner
Preuss also made mention of the fact that GM has partnered up with a major technology company to help make the services a reality, but wouldn't spill the goods on who exactly who that partner is. With Ford and Microsoft tied to each other by SYNC, we don't exactly see Bill Gates joining up with The General any time soon, and it doesn't quite seem like Apple would be willing to hop into bed with the automaker either. Of course, there are plenty of other high-profile tech companies out there that wouldn't shy away from a healthy automotive contract.
GM also made it clear that it wants to be able to push OnStar past being anchored just to its parent company. Eventually, we may see OnStar featured in other brands or bleed into other customer service outlets.
