Nokia Leads Ride Pimping Initiative With Apps, Smartphones, NFC, Wireless Charging
Nokia and a long list of car and consumer electronics firms just agreed to form the Car Connectivity Consortium--a global effort to harmonize the electronic magic that will power your future car, and which would fill K.I.T.T. with envy.
According to the press release, the newly minted Car Connectivity Consortium is an "open alliance focusing on cross industry contribution" that will release its first specification "within the next few months" with some of the "first commercial products" due later this year. But what exactly is it they're aiming at? It's exactly the kind of car-to-portable electronics standard that's needed to give us the same kind of super-clever car entertainment, navigation and information systems that we dream of from watching too much sci-fi.
Specifically it's all about connecting "high-performing mobile devices to vehicle-based systems" so that there's "new opportunities for business" and a "world of innovative applications for consumers."
