Microsoft TBox: Windows Automotive

I need to drive an Alfa Romeo when the TBox is inside… yeeaahaa:

“The TBox can provide directions, make hands-free phone calls and play digital music on customers’ mobile phones, iPods or similar devices. It also allows access to telematics services such as remote vehicle diagnostics and electronic yellow pages, which the customer would purchase separately from a service provider.

Fiat Auto has already agreed to fit TBox to all 23 of its Fiat, Lancia and Alfa Romeo models. Consultancy firm Forrester Research in Massachusetts, commented that Microsoft “has finally cracked the code with a working device that provides more functionality at a lower cost than anything else available today”.”

BTW: did you notice that there are 23 models?!
