Chevy Turns the Car into a Full Wifi Hotspot, Adds App Shop
While at CES, I stopped by the Chevy booth where I found the Hotspot car. This is a Chevy vehicle using the OnStar system to turn your car into a full hotspot. Your car even has its own phone number!
Chevy also showed off their app shop — an app enabled store where you can get automobile-centric apps like Pandora, Glympse and even Priceline.com (if you need to find a hotel). Chevy has 12 apps right now with more coming. Chevy also has an open API for developers to program with.
Chevy will include these features in all 2015 vehicles.
