BWM Vision EfficientDynamics Concept

Details are scarce, but BMW and AT&T have entered into an agreement for the telecommunications giant to provide next generation Bimmers with wireless data services. AT&T's network will be used by the automaker to enhance and expand its BMW Assist telematics system, which includes the normal emergency contacts and concierge services, along with traffic, weather, news and fuel price information. Neither company has offered a time frame for the rollout, but we've been told to expect more information in the coming months. Let's hope Big Blue's network can cope with it...

      Why partner with any Telco? Why not just pair with any phone via bt and piggyback on the phone's existing Internet/Telephony features already? Unlike!!

      BMW seems to be all over the place with its telco partners, showing that they are either genius or scattered. Perhaps it is the former -- cell phone use is going to fragment across multiple platforms regardless of Steve Jobs' turtleneck vortex. Their current "read your email" thing is Blackberry only, but this new move might show that they are willing to play nice with multiple platforms.

      Who will be the first carmarker to integrate multiple data services, or a choice of them?
