Want LTE connectivity and WiFi Hotspot capability in your car? Of course you do and GM is going to bring it to you. GM has teamed up with AT&T to offer LTE in select cars from the company. The LTE will power GM's app shop to personalize the experience for the customer and the app shop will be open to developers. We sat down with Steve Schwinke from GM at CESLive to discuss it all further.

Tesla Model S already has LTE built-in (not unlocked though) and is a wayyyyy better car. Just saying...

@jojo, probably a Model S. I got to drive one for 3 days and it was the most amazing car I have ever been in. Very fast!

Come to think about it, and it was an S,it had huge Porsche like tires and was just awesome as it sped off without hearing the engine roar,which was something I never imagined, I think another car would have definetly left some tire burn on the street.

I imagine viruses could hurt the system just like any other digital system but I can't see them allowing the connection to cross between basic systems and vital systems in the vehicle. So the software should read the cars status but not be able to change it.

It is not BS, I think it is more like crap.

Wohoo.... I am driving over 200 km/h ... let me post on Facebook and tweet my friends!

What OS ?..... First thing I went looking for and would like to know .. Hope it's QNX and another reason for AT&T to come out of the closet recently and endorse BlackBerry

Surely it will cost the consumer something, there's no way that service could be free.

Keep The Faith  BlackBerry Q10 

Oh for sure. Which is why AT&T is already developing their own in car connected service. It's definitely not a charity.

When will someone ever need connectivity in their car, and not have a phone. The service will not be free. Why not tether or allow these new systems to use existing connections. I think they have this backwards. Onstar all over again. Just repackaged.
