Chrysler has announced they’ll offer cars with the option of built in Wi-Fi starting in 2009. This will be a first, but as usual, innovation is not cheap. The device itself will set you back $500, with monthly payments of $30 to follow. Although this might be helpful occasionally, is it really worth it? When most modern phones can access the net, and even act as a gps system, paying for car Wi-Fi seems redundant. It’s like going backwards, and installing a car phone, instead of using a completely mobile device.
