Nokia Automotive has teamed up with Volkswagen to arm the new Passat line with an advanced communications system, utilizing Bluetooth to tap into the power of a cell phone.
The setup allows the car to tap into the SIM card in a compatible mobile phone, and connect to the GSM network. While in the car, this system would take the spot of the cell phone on the said network. Drivers could dial calls using an integrated keypad on the steering wheel. Once the driver leaves the vehicle, the in-car system is deactivated, and the cell phone takes its position back on the GSM network. And so goes the year of technology convergence.
More details in Nokia press-release.
