Audi and PDA pioneer palmOne have collaborated on developing an integrated hands-free calling solution for people who happen to own both an Audi A6 or A8 and a palmOne Treo 650 smart phone. The Bluetooth-enabled Audis will allow customers to make and take calls through their Treo 650s without having to touch the phones. Audi's Multi Media Interface can display the phone's contact list and call history on the nav screen and phone numbers can be punched in using the MMI knob or the car's voice-recognition system. The relationship between the two companies sprang from the close proximity of a VW lab in California to palmOne's headquarters.
